"At 12:20 a.m. a State Guard patrol responsible for protecting the protection of the premises #1 - the Presidential Administration building, was checking the perimeter and noticed a man who ran away when he saw the patrol. Upon inspecting the place that the man had left an explosive device was found near one of the exits of the Administration building where the presidential motorcade arrives to," the report says.

According to it, the bomb consisted of five F-1 grenades and one RGD grenade with a fuse and a mobile phone.
