Four dead after building collapses in Bahrain's capital
An apartment building in the Bahraini capital collapsed late on Tuesday, killing at least four people and injuring 20 others.
Three bodies were found in the Salmaniya district of Manama, with a fourth person dying in hospital, the interior ministry said in a statement on Twitter.
The cause of the explosion, according to preliminary evidence, appears to be a gas cyclinder explosion.
Two residents on the second floor of the building were reportedly cooking when the blast occurred, according to regional media reports.
More than 60 police officers and security forces arrived as well as 19 ambulances after the building collapsed.
Police said the injuries were "medium and serious" but did not specify if there were any in critical condition.
