BERLIN - Several petrol bombs were thrown at the Syrian embassy in Germany early on Tuesday, but caused minimal damage and no injuries, police and fire officials said.

The Molotov cocktails hit an outside wall of the embassy in Berlin's central Tiergarten district and quickly burned out, a fire department spokesman said.

Officials investigating the attack said they had no idea of the motive.

A statement issued by the Syrian Embassy said four petrol bombs hit the building.

"If this was the work of any Syrian groups then these people are documenting that they have not understood the current modernisation and development transformations going on in the entire country," said the embassy.
