A car was destroyed but conflicting reports called it a car bombing or a rocket-propelled grenade attack aimed at the building, which houses the embassies and a host of company offices in the heart of the city's downtown business district. Some reports suggested the rocket missed its intended target and struck the car instead.
Rick Roth, a spokesman for the Canadian foreign minister, said on Twitter the Canadian Embassy was closed at the time of the attack and all embassy employees were safe.
