A man died after attempting to throw a grenade over the wall of the United States Embassy yesterday in Montenegro, Europe.
A grenade appeared to have gone off as it was thrown into the air, and the man detonated a second device that killed him, police said, calling the death a suicide.
The man’s body was found 100 feet from the embassy’s wall, according to Steve Goldstein, United States undersecretary of state for public diplomacy and public affairs adding that the man’s motive for throwing the device was unclear.
In a statement, Montenegrin police confirmed they had found the “lifeless body of an unidentified male”.
Police said the embassy incurred no damage “other than the crater remaining at the site where the bomb exploded”, adding that “evidence from the site has been collected and it will be subject to expert evaluation”.
