An unknown attacker has thrown a molotov cocktail at a car in central Moscow.

A man threw the homemade bomb at a high-end Mercedes Maybach which was waiting to pull into a secure area off Tretaya Frunzenskaya Ulitsa.

The bottle reportedly hit the trunk of the car as the driver pulled away, the Moskva news agency reported. No casualties have been announced.

Moscow police are investigating the incident.
