MANAMA: Cleaning services will not be affected by bomb attacks in Bahrain's capital. Councillors have pledged to continue providing municipal services despite Monday's terrorist blasts that killed two and left a third person critically injured in Gudaibiya and Adliya.

So far, sabotage and vandalism in villages across the country has cost Bahrain's main cleaning companies BD2 million.

Officials have warned that if street violence and attacks on civilians do not stop then Sphinx Services and Gulf City Cleaning Company (GCCC) could go out of business.

"People are worried their daily lives will be disrupted with Monday's incident and we assure them services will continue to be provided in the utmost professional way possible," said Manama Municipal Council vice-chairman Mohammed Mansoor.

"All municipal services, mainly cleaning, have continued despite the incident and cleaners from GCCC have been asked to be cautious to ensure they don't find themselves in a similar situation as the cleaner who suffered serious injuries to his hands and legs."

Two bombs in Gudaibiya killed Indian Thirunavukarasu Murugaiyan, 29, and 33-year-old Bangladeshi Shajib Mian Shukur Mian, before a third blast injured Indian cleaner Dhana Ram Sainin.
