Suspicious package addressed to CNN intercepted in Atlanta, network says

Suspicious package addressed to CNN intercepted Suspicious Package Bound For CNN Intercepted In Atlanta, CNN Reports
Jay Anderson | 30 October, 2018, 07:15

This morning, an Atlanta post office intercepted what was deemed a suspicious package addressed to CNN Center where CNN Atlanta is headquartered.

Zucker said there was no imminent danger to the CNN Center.

Authorities have said the previous packages contained possible bombs made of six inches of PVC pipe, a small clock, a battery, wiring and what authorities termed "energetic", or possibly explosive, material.

A suspicious package was found at a post office in Atlanta, Georgia. One of those bombs was mailed to CNN offices in NY.

Cesar Sayoc, a 56-year-old Aventura, Florida, resident, was arrested on Friday in connection to the packages.




It wasn't immediately clear if the incident was tied to other parcels containing pipe bombs that were mailed to CNN's NY office and prominent Democrats last week, but the Federal Bureau of Investigation said the package looked similar. Despite Sayoc's arrest, the authorities have warned that there may be other packages that were still working their way through the postal system. "We were notified by the U.S. Postal Inspection Service. But law enforcement officials told NBC News that this mailing has "all the outward appearances" of the suspect's work", adds the network. This is the third suspicious package sent to the cable news organization in less than a week.

A new suspicious package has been sent to CNN.

The FBI said via its Twitter account that the recovered package was "similar in appearance" to the bubble-wrapped manila envelopes authorities say were sent by Sayoc to intended targets from DE to California, including former President Barack Obama, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and former Vice President Joe Biden. He's expected to make his first court appearance on Monday.

None of the bombs detonated.

The FBI said it linked Sayoc by connecting him to fingerprint on one of the envelopes, as well as a possible DNA match from two of the devices.
