An attacker threw an explosive device at the USA embassy in the Montenegrin capital Podgorica early Thursday and then killed himself with another bomb, the Montenegrin government said.

"An unknown person committed suicide with an explosive device", the government tweeted in English.

U.S. State Department spokeswoman Heather Nauert said on Twitter that there was a "small explosion" near the U.S. Embassy compound at around midnight and the embassy was seeking to confirm the safety of all its staff.

The Montenegro government said the person had attempted to throw an explosive device into the compound.

It said the device thrown was likely a hand grenade.

History weighs heavy on Furyk and his vice captains, with Team USA winless on European soil since 1993, the year Spieth was born. Steve Stricker , a 12-time major victor , has also been named as a vice-captain under team captain Jim Furyk .

'The U.S. embassy in Podgorica advises USA citizens there is an active security situation at the United States embassy in Podgorica, ' it said on its website.

A Reuters photographer in Podgorica said a police vehicle blocked the street where the embassy is located, adding that no damage was visible. Embassy officials also checked the grounds to ensure there were no further bombs or grenades.

Officials at the embassy advised US citizens to avoid the area until further notice. Police sealed off the area in Podgorica after the blasts around midnight local time. The building will be closed Thursday as a further precaution. It joined North Atlantic Treaty Organisation a year ago despite strong opposition from its traditional Slavic ally Russian Federation.

Avoid the area around the U.S. Embassy. It was once part of Yugoslavia; later, it became half of the nation of Serbia and Montenegro before declaring independence in 2006.
