Bombs sent in mail to Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton

Bombs found in mail sent to Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton

The package addressed to Clinton at her home in the New York suburb of Chappaqua was an explosive device, the New York Times reported.

Earlier on Tuesday, a package containing an explosive device was found in a mailbox outside a NY home owned by billionaire financier George Soros, and the Federal Bureau of Investigation was searching for the sender.

"We condemn the attempted violent attacks recently made against President Obama, President Clinton, Secretary Clinton, and other public figures", White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said in a statement.

Another package was sent to Time Warner's NY offices that host CNN, the channel reported.

In a statement, the Secret Service said it had intercepted two suspicious packages addressed to "protectees". His home, like Bill and Hillary's, is in Westchester County.

That device was "proactively detonated" by bomb squad technicians.

Officials said the package sent to Mr Obama was discovered at his home in Washington.

A fourth package was discovered Monday addressed to liberal billionaire - and boogeyman for some conservatives- George Soros.

Nun rape case: Priest who testified against Bishop Franco found dead
Kattuthara's family has filed a complaint with police in Alappuzha, Kerala, to seek an inquiry into the death, according to ANI . He added that it was the church officials who had rushed the priest to the hospital, where he was declared brought dead.

The official said one of the packages had the return address of Congresswoman Deborah Wasserman Schultz, an ironic reference to the former chairwoman of the Democratic National Committee.

News reported soon after that the NYPD had been called to the Time Warner Center in midtown Manhattan to investigate another suspicious package.

The package sent to the Obamas was addressed to their Washington D.C. home.

"So far the devices have been what appeared to be pipe bombs", John Miller, the NY police deputy commissioner for intelligence and counterterrorism, told a news conference.

CNN moved its stream to Washington DC as reporters were forced to evacuate their NY building during a live broadcast. A package addressed to Obama was found early Wednesday morning.

The pipe bombs were packed with shards of glass and were intercepted. No one has claimed responsibility for the explosives yet.

The evacuation came on the heels of Wednesday's bomb scare, in which an explosive device addressed to former Central Intelligence Agency director John Brennan was discovered in CNN's mail room.
