The attack comes days after the Interior Ministry banned all rallies and opposition gatherings to ensure public safety.
The police urged all Bahraini citizens and residents to avoid if they find any suspicious objects and to report the same to police.
The victims are foreigners, whose nationalities are not known.
According to the latest census, half of the Bahraini population are foreign nationals, dominated by Indians, Pakistanis and Bangladeshis.
