DUBAI (Reuters) - Bahrain has arrested several suspects in connection with an explosion in the village of a Shi'ite Muslim spiritual leader, the Ministry of Interior said on Twitter on Tuesday.

The blast on Sunday in Diraz, home to Ayatollah Isa Qassim and a flashpoint for violence, killed one member of the security services and wounded two others. Manama blamed it on "terrorists". [L8N1JF106]

The names, nationalities and precise number of suspects arrested were not disclosed.

In a separate tweet the ministry said it had found a body from a bombing in nearby Hajar village.
