Suicide attack at Montenegro US embassy

US Embassy in Montenegro

PODGORICA: An attacker has hurled an explosive device at the US embassy in the Montenegrin capital Podgorica and then killed himself with another bomb, the Montenegrin government says.

Both devices were probably hand grenades, the first thrown into the embassy yard and the second, which killed the attacker, in the street outside, it said on Twitter.

The blasts occurred at 1.30 am local time on Thursday.

It said, “Most probably, the device was a hand grenade,” adding that police investigation and identification were underway.

A photographer in Podgorica said a police vehicle blocked the street where the embassy is located, adding that no damage was visible.
