The Montenegrin police said the perpetrators poured gasoline over the Nissan vehicle and then set on fire.

The incident represents another in a series of attacks against the newspaper property and employees.

On December 26, powerful explosives were set off at the building housing the daily, causing material damage but no injuries.

In November, stones were thrown at the building, that was also attacked during the Pride Parade the previous month.

An explosive device was activated in August in front of the house of Vijesti journalist Tufik Softić.

The police and the prosecution are yet to solve a series of incidents that happened in 2011, when four vehicles belonging to the newspaper were set on fire.
