MANAMA, Feb. 12 (Xinhua) -- A home-made device exploded in one of Bahrain's busy malls on Tuesday, leaving only material damage.
There were no casualties, but sources said glasses of shops were damaged and people were evacuated as a safety measure.
"A domestic terror act of remotely detonated explosion targeted lives at a shopping center in Isa Town that led to limited damages, " the Interior Ministry confirmed.
The bomb exploded moments after the coalition of opposition groups announced a one-day financial boycott on Thursday to mark the second anniversary of anti-government protests in Bahrain.
During a rally in Sanabis on Tuesday, opposition groups urged their supporters to boycott shopping malls and banks in an attempt to cripple the economy.
