"There was an incident", a police official confirmed to Reuters, providing no further details.

Photos posted on Jaukovic's Facebook profile include a plaque honouring his contribution in the fight against North Atlantic Treaty Organisation during the bombing. In a Facebook post in May, Jaukovic said "no to North Atlantic Treaty Organisation".

Montenegro, one of the world's newest nations, is a small Balkan country of almost 650,000 people located between Bosnia and Herzegovina, Serbia, Kosovo, and Albania.

A former Yugoslav republic, the nation formed part of Serbia and Montenegro after Yugoslavia broke up in 1992 before it declared independence from Serbia in 2006, becoming a North Atlantic Treaty Organisation member a year ago.

The US State Department said embassy officials were working with police to identify the assailant and was working internally to confirm all staff are safe.

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.

Late on Wednesday night, a man threw a hand grenade at the American embassy in the Montenegrin capital, Podgorica.

The European Union is following the "developments on the ground", Maja Kocijancic, a spokeswoman for EU foreign-policy chief Federica Mogherini, told RFE/RL.

The blast created a crater but caused no other material damage to the embassy property, the statement said.

A USA official, demanding anonymity because he was not authorized to discuss the situation with reporters, said the attacker acted alone.
