A spokeswoman for the Swiss embassy said the explosion there had occurred around midday (1100 GMT).

The embassy is located on via Barnaba Oriani near Villa Glori Park, to the north of the city centre.

The person hurt at the Chilean embassy did not suffer serious injuries.

That embassy is located on the via Po near the Villa Borghese in central Rome.

The Mayor of Rome, Gianni Alemanno, said: “It’s a wave of terrorism against embassies, something much more worrisome than a single attack.”
