On November 30, a 19-year-old man threw a petrol bomb at the US Embassy building in downtown Tallinn.

The incident took place at around 18:00 and the culprit was apprehended at the scene of the crime, according to the North Prefecture.

The Northern District Prosecutor's Office has initiated criminal proceedings against the man for a serious public order violation.

The US Embassy told that the Molotov cocktail was thrown at the headquarters’ exterior wall. As a result, a small fire broke out, which embassy security guards managed to extinguish.

The embassy said it does not consider the incident an act of terrorism.
