The headquarters of a tax department in the southern Vietnamese province of Binh Duong have been damaged after an explosion happened on Monday morning, with police now investigating the cause of the incident.

The blast rocked the provincial Department of Taxation, situated on National Highway 13 in Thu Dau Mot City, at around 9:30 am, Nguyen Minh Tam, head of the agency, confirmed on the same day.

Everybody was at work at the time, Tam continued, adding that no one was harmed in the incident.
