February 25, 1996|From Times Staff and Wire Reports

An explosion near a key U.S. Navy base in the Persian Gulf wrecked the car of a top Arab newspaper editor, raising tensions in a country hit by weeks of unrest. An anonymous caller claimed responsibility in the name of antigovernment activists for the blast in the daily Al Ayam's parking lot. One person was slightly injured. The building is only 200 yards from the U.S. Navy base south of Manama, the biggest naval facility in the region. No damage was reported at the base.
