Jerusalem:  A large explosion and fire in a building near Tel Aviv killed three people, Israeli police said early on Tuesday, adding that they were still investigating the cause.

Two men were pronounced dead at the scene, while a third died later of his injuries, police said.

Another four people were still being treated for their injuries, medics said.

A police spokeswoman said the three men killed had provisionally been identified as a Jaffa resident, a man from the Israeli Arab town of Taibe and a Palestinian from the occupied West Bank.
