A bomb placed in a vehicle exploded outside the British embassy in Bahrain's capital early on Sunday, the Gulf Arab state's interior ministry said.
"Given the strength of the explosion and the debris it scattered, it was a highly-explosive substance that was used," a ministry spokesman said in comments on Twitter posted live from
a news conference.
"The explosion was the result of a package placed under the front tyre."

Iran has been targetting the Shia majority in Bahrain for years, stirring them up and hoping for an overthrow of the Sunni King. I suspect this would one of their "sympathisers" they have there.

I think it would be the work of a supporter of Iran or an Iranian, they do have a motive. With the attack on the UK embassy it would be no mere coincidence for another attack to be made on another embassy surely? It is clear though that militants are in the process of increasing their attacks on the UK. Lets just hope they don't end up at home.
