Bomb explodes at Indonesian Embassy in Paris

A PACKAGE bomb has exploded at the Indonesian Embassy in Paris, causing minor damage but no injuries, a police official has said.

The official said an employee at the embassy discovered a suspicious package and stepped back in time before the package exploded.

The official said no one was injured. The source of the package is not immediately clear.

It is not known if the bomb was in anyway linked to the siege in Toulouse where police have surrounded a self procalimed al Qaeda jihadist who is suspected of a series of murders.

Police are on site at the embassy in an elegant neighbourhood of western Paris.
