I’ll update as necessary….
UPDATE: HOLY CRAP.
An unknown man threw an explosive device at the United States embassy building in Podgorica, the capital of Montenegro, before blowing himself up, media in the city said.
What a tool. He probably didn’t hurt anyone, but then killed himself!! Moron.
The attack came five minutes before midnight on Wednesday, web portal www.portalanalitika.me said, adding that citizens in the area heard two explosions.
“There was an incident,” a police official, who declined to give his name, told Reuters. He did not provide details.
A Reuters photographer in Podgorica said a police vehicle blocked the street where the embassy is located, adding that no damage was visible.
