KIEV: A small blast hit the premises of the US Embassy in Kiev overnight after an unknown assailant lobbed an explosive device, Ukrainian police said on Thursday. No casualties were reported.

“Investigators found that an unknown person threw an explosive device onto the territory of the diplomatic mission,” the police said in a statement.

The US embassy – located in central Kiev – confirmed that an “incident involving a small incendiary device” happened just after midnight but said diplomats were working “as normal” after no damage was caused.
