    On Saturday, Nashville Mayor John Cooper said that the blast was caused by a "deliberate bomb", which injured at least three people and damaged some 20 buildings in the area.

    A new video of the Christmas morning blast in the US city of Nashville has emerged on the Internet.

    The footage shows what looks like a police officer walking down the street against the background of a parked RV and a police car.

    ​Later the policeman is seen exiting the frame, which is followed by a powerful explosion, with thick black smoke and flying debris.

    The video comes after local police said that an explosion took place on Friday morning in the city centre in a van parked on the side of the road. At least three people were injured and 20 building were damaged as a result of the blast.

    Before the vehicle exploded, a pre-recorded warning urged people in the area to evacuate.

    The FBI is investigating the explosion, which could possibly have been a suicide bombing, CNN cited unnamed sources as saying.
