This morning, it was reported that explosive devices were sent to former President Barack Obama and presidential nominee Hillary Clinton.

On Wednesday, the discovery of a suspicious package addressed to NBC and MSNBC correspondent John Brennan found inside CNN's mailroom caused the evacuation of its NY offices.

The Time Warner Building in New York City, where media organisation CNN is based, was evacuated after receiving a similar package.

The developments, which unfolded rapidly and continued steadily into the afternoon, touched off fear and confusion and immediately invited questions about the motives of those responsible. The Secret Service, however, later said it had only intercepted the two packages intended for Obama and Clinton and called reports of a package headed for the White House "incorrect".

Clapper appeared on CNN shortly after news broke a package was addressed to him, saying he felt relief no one was harmed by that device.

Much was publicly unknown about the devices, including how they were delivered and why none had exploded. Cory Booker and former National Intelligence Director James Clapper were intercepted - both similar to those containing pipe bombs discovered earlier in the week.

"There would need to be a second set of batteries or another power source within that device to function the switch causing the device to explode", May said.

The devices sent to the Obama and Clinton homes were similar to one found on Monday at the home of billionaire philanthropist George Soros, according to the Associated Press, citing an unnamed official.

"The matter is now under federal investigation", the police said in a statement, referring questions to the FBI.

Law enforcement officials said all the packages were similar: manila envelopes with bubble-wrap interior bearing six stamps and the return address of Florida Representative Schultz.

California lawmaker Maxine Waters was sent two suspicious packages. The bomb squad was investigating the package discovered at Wasserman Schultz's office, a local police spokesman said.

Former CIA Director John Brennan, the target of one package sent to CNN where he has been a contributor, fired back. The Soros package was believed to have been placed in a mailbox rather than mailed, a separate law enforcement source said.

Also among the dead were passers-by who had been picnicking in the area, he said, adding that a nearby bridge had collapsed. The private-school students and their adult chaperones were touring near the Dead Sea when the floods carried them away.

Al-Jubeir also said he expected the US-Saudi ties to withstand the aftermath of the Khashoggi murder. That explanation has sparked allegations of a cover-up meant to shield the powerful crown prince.

As for the other suspicious packages, nobody was harmed and the explosives never arrived at the Obamas and Clintons' homes; the packages were intercepted before they got there.

"It is a troubling time, isn't it?" "In these times we have to unify".

Republicans in the state have been growing increasingly nervous about the prospects of holding onto the governor's office, held by Scott Walker, let alone state Sen.

The package intended for Obama was intercepted in Washington, DC, and the one intended for Clinton was addressed to her in Westchester County, New York, on Tuesday.

Trump said he was briefed by the Secret Service, Department of Justice, Department of Homeland Security and the FBI, and a major federal investigation is under way.

The White House said it condemned the "attempted violent attacks".

Press Secretary Sarah Sanders added in a statement that the "US Secret Service and other law enforcement agencies are investigating and will take all appropriate actions to protect anyone threatened by these cowards". He was critical of opponents of President Trump expressing his views on Twitter.

Details suggested a pattern - that the items were packaged in manila envelopes, addressed to prominent Trump critics and carried US postage stamps.

Explosive devices were sent to former President Barack Obama and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, as well as to CNN's offices in NY, sparking an intense investigation on Wednesday into whether a bomber is going after targets that have often been the subject of right-wing ire. NY police removed the device in a bomb containment vehicle. The bomb sent to CNN was addressed to Brennan, who also appears on air on other broadcast and cable outlets.

A law enforcement official said the packages addressed to Biden were intercepted at DE mail facilities in New Castle and Wilmington and were similar to the others.

The official said the devices were made from PVC pipe and covered with black tape.
