A parcel bomb exploded outside the Indonesian embassy in Paris at 5:20 am local time on Wednesday.

No injuries were reported from the explosion, though it caused minor damages to the building.

"The Indonesian ambassador in Paris reported that the explosion took place at one of the crossroads near the embassy at 5:20 am. We don't know the target of the bomb. The ambassador is at the location but he can't go near," AFP quoted Djoko Suyanto, French Security Minister as saying.

"The windows were broken but there's no report yet of Indonesian or staff casualties. We are still waiting for developments," Suyanto added.

Witnesses claimed that they saw three men leaving a package near the building in the west of French capital. After some time, one of the witnesses noticed that someone carried that package and moved it some ten metres away before fleeing, according to AFP.

So far no group or individual has claimed responsibility for the attack.

"But it's not clear whether it was only a bomb threat or a bomb explosion. We're still looking for clarity on whether we were the target or not," AFP quoted Teuku Faizasyah, Indonesian presidential spokesman on foreign affairs as saying.
