Bulgarian police say an explosion has ripped through a bus carrying Israeli tourists, killing at least three people and injuring more than 20 others.

Wednesday's blast occurred at an airport in the Black Sea city of Burgas. Police say several other buses at the site were also damaged.

The cause of the explosion was not immediately clear. But Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu blamed Iran — noting similarities to attacks on Israeli tourists in India, Thailand and other places.
