Ex-Serbian Soldier Attacks US Embassy in Montenegro with Grenade, Kills Himself

The police are not now treating the attack on the U.S. Embassy as an act of terrorism, and believe Janukovic acted alone.

The U.S. established diplomatic ties with the tiny Balkan state in 2006 after it split from much larger Serbia. State Department spokeswoman Heather Nauert said that consular operations at the embassy closed Thursday for the day "out of an abundance of caution" but that the embassy remains open for emergency services.

The warning on the website said the embassy "advises US citizens there is an active security situation at the USA embassy in Podgorica".

An unidentified man threw an explosive device, probably a hand grenade, at the US embassy building in Podgorica, the capital of Montenegro, around midnight before blowing himself up, the government said on Thursday.

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.

Arizona has four games remaining in the regular season, including Thursday's matchup against Oregon State. Assistant coach Emanuel "Book" Richardson was sacked last month after being implicated in the U.S.

Policemen with submachine guns and police vehicles were out on the streets near the embassy building on Thursday morning after the incident.

Many in Montenegro remain opposed to the country's membership in North Atlantic Treaty Organisation because of the air war the alliance waged to stop the war in Kosovo when Montenegro was still part of Yugoslavia. "Immediately before, that person threw an explosive device from the intersection near the Sport Center into the US Embassy compound".

In a statement, Montenegrin police confirmed they had found the "lifeless body of an unidentified male".

The U.S. State Department has said embassy officials are working with police to identify the assailant and internally to confirm all staff are safe. The blast reportedly created a small crater on the embassy grounds but inflicted no significant damage to the building and did not harm any of the staff.
