Incident near the British Embassy, Bahrain

"We are aware of an incident involving a vehicle near the British Embassy in the early hours of Sunday 4 December.  Police and Fire services attended.  There were no casualties or injuries.  We cannot confirm the cause or responsibility for the incident.  We are liaising with the Ministry of Interior, and have requested a temporary increase in security and patrols.  But the Embassy has not changed its security status, nor has there been any change to the level of travel advice (although we are providing a factual update).”
