Police does not consider the incident a terrorist attack
A man detonated what appeared to be a hand grenade in a bakery in the Serbian capital Belgrade on Monday, killing himself, Reuters reports.
The middle-aged man ordered everyone inside to leave the premises, owned by Bratislav Petkovic, a former culture minister, and activated the device, a Serbian police officer said, speaking on condition of anonymity. No one else was injured.
"According to witnesses, the man sat in a booth and blew up himself with a black object we believe was a hand grenade ... his identity is unknown," the police officer said.
The motive for the blast was not known.
Police sealed off the area around the shop after the blast. Investigation is underway.
