Axar.az reports citing to Reuters bursts of gunfire followed the attack, which targeted the Italian Coffee cafeteria, located near the passport office. A Reuters photographer saw corpses sprawled on the ground at the scene of the blast.

Major Aden Ibrahim, a police official, told Reuters the attack was carried out by a suicide bomber.
