Brent crude rises $2 on Bahrain worries

By @ibtimes on

Brent crude rose by over $2 to touch $110.54 a barrel on Wednesday after Bahraini security forces cleared protestors from an area of Manama.

Also Japanese demand for oil could rise to replace lost nuclear power capacity, analysts said, helping to push oil futures higher.
