One of the two cans exploded inside the embassy’s grounds, the officials said, adding that the 54-year-old man then threw a third can that did not explode at a policeman who was chasing him.
The man said he attacked the embassy because he believed German extremists insulted Prophet Mohammed, the officials said.
A far right German group had displayed a caricature of the prophet outside a Berlin mosque on Saturday amid a heavy police presence. Islamic law prohibits depictions of the prophet.
