    A bombing has occurred at a police station in Bahrain’s capital Manama, the country’s Ministry of Interior said.

    MANAMA (Sputnik) – The "terrorist blast" took place on Thursday evening and targeted the Khamis Police Station, the ministry informed early on Friday.

    The ministry added that the attack did not result in any casualties or injuries.

    A police investigation into the attack is underway.

    Since 2011 unrest, when Bahrain’s Shiite majority protested amid the Arab Spring uprisings in the region, Shiite youth groups, opposed to the ruling Sunni Khalifa royal family, have been targeting security forces with improvised explosive devices.

    At the end of August, an explosion occurred in the northern Bahraini Shiite village of Karana.
