Police probe suspicious package addressed to Robert De Niro

Secret Service: Suspicious packages sent to Clintons, Obamas

In addition to its appearance, the package also had the same return address as the others: that of Democratic Rep.

An explosive ordnance disposal team destroyed the package sent to Soros through a controlled detonation.

The Secret Service intercepted two of the packages, which were addressed to former President Obama's home in Washington and Bill and Hillary Clinton's residence in Westchester County, New York.

The spree of bomb alerts was kicked off Monday with a device found at the NY home of billionaire liberal donor George Soros. The former Central Intelligence Agency director frequently appears on CNN.

CNN's NY bureau in midtown Manhattan was also reportedly sent a package.

It was chaos and confusion outside New York's Time Warner building, home to CNN, on Wednesday after a suspected explosive device addressed to former CIA Director John Brennan - a critic of President Trump - was found in the building's mail room. The mailing address and return address have been edited out of the photo at source.

United States authorities are searching for suspects in the sending of package bombs to high-profile Democrats in what's been called a terrorist act that's raised tensions in a nation already polarised ahead of elections in November.

The first package was sent to George Soros, a billionaire philanthropist and target of right-wing conspiracy theories, on Monday, the AP reports. It was rendered safe in Bedford, New York, a law enforcement source told CNN.

Police are investigating a suspicious package addressed to actor Robert De Niro in NY.

"This is clearly an act of terror, attempting to undermine our free press, leaders of this country through acts of violence", New York Mayor, Bill de Blasio, said, after the explosive was discovered at CNN on October 24. "Thus far, they have shown no comprehension of that".

The FBI confirmed there was law enforcement activity at the US mail facility in DE and aerial footage shot by NBC showed a heavy law enforcement response.

Those devices are believed to be pipe bombs, inherently unstable, and at risk of being set off just by handling.

What is in the manila envelopes with bubble wrap? Each package had six American flag Forever stamps on the envelope.

The bombs were likely meant to be found and create panic, explosives experts say.

The devices had suspicious-looking packaging, and at least one had a timer that can be bought for a few dollars online and should be easily detected when mailed or delivered.

The investigation comes less than 24 hours after authorities across the country began investigating a series of suspicious packages containing explosive devices that were mailed to prominent Democrats and CNN's offices in NY. It was not immediately clear how many they discovered.

"When I spoke to somebody last night, they said, 'Look, we will wake up and see, and there could be more because the mail comes in the morning, so we could see more today'". "It has gotten so bad and hateful that is beyond description". Clean up your act.try to act Presidential. But by Thursday morning, he was back to his old ways, launching verbal attacks on the media.

The New York Police Department received a call from security personnel at Tribeca Productions, the film and television company co-founded by De Niro in 1989, at approximately 5:00 a.m. ET on Thursday about a suspicious package addressed to the actor, a rep for the NYPD told EW.

Some top Democrats have called the threats a symptom of a coarsening brand of political rhetoric promoted by Trump, who also condemned the acts.
