A number of ambulances and security reinforcements were sent to the scene after the attack, which took place at around 11 a.m.
The bomb-laden car was detonated as it was passing through the security barriers at the entrance of the headquarters, which were built as a precaution against attacks.
Surrounding buildings were also damaged in the blast.
