Three hurt in Moscow subway blast

MOSCOW, Russia -- Three people have been injured in an explosion that shook one of Moscow's busiest underground railway stations, police said.

An emergencies ministry spokesman said the blast hit the Belorusskaya underground station, a key hub on one of the busiest lines in the capital.

Police said an explosive device placed under a bench went off at about 6.45 p.m. local time (1545 GMT).

A bomb at a central Moscow metro station in August last year killed about a dozen people.

Reuters contributed to this report.
