BUDAPEST: A bomb blew up at a Budapest branch of the Hungarian CIB Bank in the early hours of Monday morning, but police said no one was injured.

The device went off shortly after 4 a.m. (0300 GMT), police said. A Reuters camerawoman on the scene saw some damage to the building.

"Based on preliminary data, the explosion was caused by an explosive device of unknown structure and substance," police said in a statement.

CIB Bank is a unit of Italy's Banca Intesa. A CIB spokeswoman declined to comment.

The police were not available to give further details.
