MOSCOW, Sept. 1 (Xinhua) -- At least two people were killed and another one was injured in an explosion that hit a private house in Russia's volatile republic of Ingushetia early Thursday, according to local authorities.

The authorities told local media that the explosion occurred at around 01:00 Moscow time (2100 GMT Wednesday) in the house located in the Pliyevo village, central Nazran region.

They added that bodies of the two dead victims have been found at the scene and the injured person has already been hospitalized.

Police initially determined the accident was caused by a gas explosion, but later investigators said the blast could have been caused by an explosive devise. The investigation is still underway.

Russia has been plagued by terror attacks for years, many of which originated from the North Caucasus republics of Chechnya, Dagestan and Ingushetia.
