The explosion was caused by a short circuit in the fuel tank of the bus, according to the report.
A source with knowledge of the matter, who asked not to be named, said at least ten people were wounded.
Military and security sources said that the army had seized a fuel storage tank hidden by black marketeers and was in the midst of handing out gasoline to residents when the explosion took place.
