The blast caused only material damages to the embassy property, the statement said.

"At this time, Embassy officials are working closely with police to identify the assailant (s)".

The U.S. Embassy in the Balkan state of Montenegro was attacked Thursday by an individual armed with a hand grenade, who hurled the explosive at the compound before blowing himself up.

"At 00:30 [23:30 UTC], in front of the US Embassy building in Podgorica, Montenegro, an unknown person committed suicide with an explosive device". They said security was beefed up around all foreign embassies in Montenegro.

US and Montenegrin officials said nobody at the embassy was injured in the attack in the capital, Podgorica, which the government said occurred at 12:30 a.m. on February 22.

The bomber has not been identified by law enforcement, and no statement has been made regarding his possible motive for the ill-fated attack.

The U.S. embassy in Montenegro's capital Podgorica has confirmed that no one was injured when an assailant threw an explosive device into the compound.

The newspaper also said that Jaukovic, a resident of Podgorica, was born in Kraljevo, a town in Serbia, "and was, judging by his Facebook posts, opposed to Montenegro's membership in North Atlantic Treaty Organisation". Police say Jaukovic was a Montenegrin citizen born in neighboring Serbia. It joined North Atlantic Treaty Organisation in May a year ago, the 29th country to do so.

The embassy said on its Twitter account that it had cancelled all visa services for Thursday, adding that access for United States citizens "will be available today on an emergency basis".

The US embassy earlier issued a security alert, advising citizens to stay away from the mission.

The man's body was found 100 feet from the embassy's wall, according to Steve Goldstein, US Undersecretary of state for public diplomacy and public affairs. The man was also named by Montenegro's daily paper, Vijesti.
