Suspicious package in Tribeca area of New York City

Secret Service: Suspicious packages sent to Clintons, Obamas

Authorities are also investigating a suspicious package in South Central LA that was addressed to U.S. Rep. Maxine Waters.

"The protectees did not receive the packages nor were they at risk of receiving them", it said.

Mrs. Clinton was in Florida and thanked the Secret Service for intercepting the package.

Former President Barack Obama and two-time presidential candidate Hillary Clinton were mailed explosive devices disguised as packages on Wednesday.

"We are fine, thanks to the men and women of the Secret Service", Clinton said.

On Wednesday, employees at CNN and within the Time Warner Center building were forced to evacuate after receiving mysterious explosive devices. It started Monday when a device was found in the mailbox of a home owned by billionaire political activist George Soros. He's merely the latest to be targeted with an explosive device.

A law enforcement source said the device appeared to be linked to the others sent to Democratic figures and CNN's New York City hub. At least three of the packages sent on Wednesday contained similar pipe bombs, and all gave Wasserman Schultz' office as their return address. CNN reported that the package was meant for former US Attorney General Eric Holder.

FBI investigators are working around the clock to identify the source of the suspicious packages, and say it is extremely helpful that none of the devices detonated, which will help them trace the source.

The packages sent to Biden were considered suspicious due to its similarities to other packages sent this week, law enforcement officials said. Later, authorities revealed the package was addressed to former CIA Director John Brennan - who is not an employee of the network, but rather a contributor to MSNBC.

"Stop blaming others. Look in the mirror".

A Saudi official, however, said the team handed over Khashoggi's body to a local "collaborator" to dispose. My guess is at the end of the day, the US and the rest of the world will believe fully that he did it.

Authorities said on Wednesday the pipe bombs were packed with shards of glass and were intercepted.

Gov. Andrew Cuomo ordered "100 additional National Guard soldiers and directing State law enforcement to double security at vital assets across NY, including LaGuardia and JFK, mass transit systems, and bridges and tunnels".

CNN has been a repeated target of Trump's attack, with the United States president often labelling the network as "fake news".

"We will spare no resource or expense in this effort", Trump said. "Thus far, they have shown no comprehension of that".

A suspicious package was sent to actor Robert De Niro in New York City, CBS News has learned.

Packages sent to all but Biden are in manila envelopes with bubble wrap interior, the Federal Bureau of Investigation said.

NBC's NY affiliate reported that the package was similar to ones sent to prominent Democrats earlier this week and was sent to a restaurant owned by actor Robert De Niro.

The White House condemned the attacks aimed at Democrats and other perceived foes of the administration. In other words, the lawmakers suggest Trump's words do not mean much because he supports violence in other ways.

The device intended for de Niro, who received a loud ovation when he hurled an obscenity at Mr Trump at the Tony Awards last June, was sent to one of his properties in New York City.

Democrats hoping to make gains in midterm elections have called Trump out for his rhetoric. Democratic House and Senate leaders Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer both said that conciliatory talk sounds "hollow" coming from Trump.
