MOSCOW -- Three people were killed in an explosion outside a house in southern Russia and police think the blast was a bomb, Itar-Tass reported.

The blast took place Friday outside a house in Tambovka, about 130 kilometers north of the Caspian Sea city of Astrakhan, the report said.

According to the report, an illegal scrap-metal business was operated at the house and the Federal Security Service said its initial investigation indicated the blast was a bombing apparently motivated by a business dispute.
