An explosion shook a village in Bahrain late on Tuesday and one person was killed, police and witnesses said.

The cause of the explosion in the village of Bani Jamra, west of the capital Manama, was not immediately clear. Some witnesses said it was caused by a bomb.

The Interior Ministry said police received a call from a person reporting the blast and were told one person was dead at the scene.

"Police deployed to the area and dealt with a suspicious object," the ministry said on its Twitter account without elaborating.

The country, ruled by the al-Khalifa family, has been buffeted by political turmoil since 2011 when mostly Shi'ite protesters took to the streets calling for political reforms and more say in government.
