Belgrade: Police in Serbia say three people have been killed and eight others injured in a hand grenade blast at a packed village nightclub.

The explosion in Idvor, north of Belgrade, occurred at 2:30 am today (0030 GMT Sunday) when a man activated the grenade at the entrance to the club.

About 150 customers were inside at the time. Serbia`s state TV says the man was angry because he and three of his friends were refused entry by the club`s security. He and one of his friends were killed in the blast.
Such incidents aren`t unusual in Serbia since the wars in the Balkans in the 1990s when many hand grenades and firearms were taken home from warfronts.
