An early morning Christmas Day car bomb exploded in downtown Nashville on Friday, in what police believe was a deliberate attack.
A large blast was reported at 6.30am local time in a commercial district of the Tennessee capital, which hours earlier had been packed with Christmas shoppers.
Forty minutes earlier, police received a call of a suspicious vehicle in the area. A police officer went to the scene to check it out and then called in the bomb squad. Before they arrived the bomb exploded.
Three people were transported to hospitals from the scene, but none are in critical condition, according to Joseph Pleasant, Nashville Fire spokesman.
