  • Yugoslav Army Veteran Throws Grenade At US Embassy In Montenegro Then Blows Himself Up

The U.S. State Department confirmed late on February 22 that Jaukovic was opposed to Montengro's membership of North Atlantic Treaty Organisation as well as pro-Western political leaders in Montenegro.

Jaukovic, born in the southern city of Kraljevo, Serbia, and residing in Podgorica, launched a hand grenade to the USA diplomatic mission early yesterday and then killed himself by activating another explosive device.

Portalanalitika said the motive for the attack was not yet known.

A Reuters photographer in Podgorica said a police vehicle blocked the street where the embassy is located, adding that no damage was visible.

A family friend has described the man who allegedly hurled a bomb into the USA embassy compound in Montenegro's capital Podgorica and then killed himself as 'a good patriot'.

Batshuayi accuses Atalanta fans of racist abuse
Atalanta were suspended for one match earlier when the home fans subjected Napoli defender Kalidou Koulibaly to racial abuse. Batshuayi has scored five goals in as many games for BVB since arriving on loan from the Blues on transfer deadline day.

Serbia-born Dalibor Jaukovic left a six-page handwritten note asking his family "to forgive him for what he is going to do", the Pobjeda newspaper reported, citing sources close to the investigation.

An unknown person threw an explosive device at the United States embassy in Montenegro today before blowing himself up, the European nation's government says.

Although early reports implied the bomber killed himself by accident, the latest police statements indicate he deliberately committed suicide with a second explosive after throwing a bomb over the embassy walls. Nobody else was hurt by the two explosions.

"Many in Montenegro remain opposed to the country's North Atlantic Treaty Organisation membership because of the air war the alliance waged to stop the war in Kosovo when Montenegro was still part of Yugoslavia", the Associated Press notes.
