Three separate blasts on Wednesday occurred in three Russian cities and killed three people, according to local media reports.

A suspected bomb went off next to the building of the Federal Security Service's (FSB) Academy on Michurinsky Prospekt in southwestern Moscow, but injured no one, local media reported, adding that several cars were damaged in the blast.

Local authorities said police officers have already tightened up security for the possible mass congestion of people in the prospekt.

Citing a source with the FSB, the Interfax news agency said investigators think the blast might serve as a diversion of possible larger attacks in the coming days.

In the Russian city of Nalchik, regional capital of the Kabardino-Balkaria republic in North Caucasus, a man threw a self- made bomb at a policeman, but only killed himself. The bomber detonated the bomb when a police patrol tried to stop and search him at the entrance to a local public school.

In Krasnodar, southern Russia, a blast killed two during a routine dispute between families, as a man threw a self-made explosive device into his neighbor's house, killing himself and his neighbor.

Also on Wednesday, police officers said they had received several telephone warnings about bombs planted in a number of Russian universities in four different cities, including Moscow State University where U.S. Vice President Joe Biden is to deliver a speech on Thursday. However, no bomb was found in any of these places.
