Another Suspicious Package Addressed to CNN Intercepted in Atlanta

President Donald Trump on October 26. praised law enforcement efforts to capture the suspect.

All mail at all of CNN's domestic bureaus has been screened at off-site facilities since Wednesday, so the package would have not come to the building. The list includes high-profile celebrities and media personalities similar to those who already were sent possible bombs, the official said.

The fifteenth envelope - a third mailing destined for CNN headquarters in Atlanta after two earlier packages were sent to the station's NY offices - was intercepted Monday afternoon at a postal facility.

The Joint Terrorism Task Force is notifying those whose names are on the alleged target list, the official said, and authorities have warned that other packages may still be out there. Authorities believe he was putting explosives together in his van. The official wasn't authorized to discuss the ongoing investigation and spoke on condition of anonymity to the AP.

For the third time in a week, a suspicious package has been addressed to CNN.

In a statement, CNN president Jeff Zucker said that "there is no imminent danger to the CNN Center".

Sayoc was arrested last Friday on five federal charges relating to the bombs sent to Democrats and other prominent critics of President Donald Trump.

Out of teams in the top half of the table, Arsenal only have wins over Watford and Everton so far. We need to control the matches more than we are doing now.

Suspicious packages matching these three were also sent to former President Barack Obama, former Vice President Joe Biden, Hillary Clinton, billionaire and liberal donor George Soros, billionaire and liberal donor Tom Steyer, former Attorney General Eric Holder, Sen.

In US District Court on Monday afternoon, Cesar Sayoc, his salt-and-pepper hair pulled back into a ponytail, remained largely silent, only acknowledging Judge Edwin Torres' reading of the charges against him. Sayoc was arrested Friday in Florida after investigators said they identified him through fingerprint and DNA evidence.

"Right now, we know very, very, very little", Aaronson said of the case.

Shackled at the wrists and ankles in a tan jail jumpsuit, Sayoc became weepy at one point, but said little at the hearing.

Balsamo reported from Washington.

A suspicious package addressed to CNN was intercepted on Monday by a post office in Atlanta.

The two packages that authorities say Sayoc directed to CNN previously were targeted at former director of national intelligence James Clapper and former CIA director John Brennan.
