A motorbike exploded in front of the Jordanian embassy's military office in Paris on Wednesday, with no injuries reported.

Abdallah Alolaimat, a consular official at the Jordanian Embassy in Paris, told The Associated Press that the explosion occurred in front of the Jordanian military attaché’s office on the chic Avenue Foch in western Paris on Wednesday morning. 

A police official said that a scooter caught fire and caused a small explosion.

"It doesn't seem to be an intentional act that targets Jordan," an embassy official told Reuters.

The explosion caused minor damage to vehicles parked in front of the building, Jordan's Petra News Agency quoted the Foreign Ministry spokesman as saying.

The Jordanian ambassador in Paris was reassured about the safety of workers in the military mission, the report added.
