Two men were killed in an apparent hand grenade explosion in downtown Kiev, Ukrainian police said on Wednesday.
The blast that left two men dead and also one woman injured happened late on Tuesday at the entrance to an office building in the centre of the capital, police said.
Kiev police spokeswoman Oksana Blyshchyk told AFP that one of the dead was a former soldier who fought against Russian-backed separatists in the country's east.
The second victim was an office guard, she added.
“Fragments found at the scene indicate that it was a hand grenade,” Blyshchyk said.
Police said they were investigating the circumstances of the explosion, adding that the working version of the incident was the careless handling of an explosive device.
Attacks or accidents involving grenades and other weapons are not uncommon in Ukraine, where a large number of arms circulate due to the conflict in the east.
The gas blast on Thursday ripped through the mine in Yurievka village in the self-proclaimed republic of Lugansk, which broke away from Kiev in 2014 and is run by Moscow-backed rebels.
Security officials and witnesses reported bodies strewn on the ground as plumes of smoke rose high into the air after the bomb detonated on Mogadishu's Maka Al-Mukarama road, one of the seaside capital's main thoroughfares, an area busy with businesses and travellers.
