A blast was reported at the US embassy in Ukraine’s capital Kiev on Thursday. Police said an explosive device was thrown over the embassy’s fence just after midnight. It is being treated as a terrorist act, police added. No one was injured in the incident. The U.S. embassy’s compound on the western outskirts of Kiev is surrounded by a high fence, making it difficult for a passer-by to hurl something there. In a subsequent statement, the embassy confirmed the incident involving a “small incendiary device,” and added that it does not consider it a terrorist act.
