A bomb was detonated under a parked car in the Bosnian city of Banja Luka on Tuesday morning, police said.

The interior minister in Bosnia’s Republika Srpska entity, Dragan Lukac, said that it was not a terrorist incident but “a targeted attack on one person”.

He said that the driver and a passer-by were hurt in the blast.

Police have closed down the part of the city where the bomb went off and are investigating the crime scene.

Media reports suggested that the car belongs to a professor at the nearby high school.
