  • Suspicious Package Bound For CNN Intercepted In Atlanta, CNN Reports

This image obtained Wednesday, Oct. 24, 2018, and provided by ABC News shows a package addressed to former Central Intelligence Agency head John Brennan and an explosive device that was sent to CNN's NY office.

On Monday, CNN's Brian Stelter reported that yet another suspicious package sent to the news network has been intercepted at a post office in Atlanta.

It's unclear whether Sayoc is suspected to be responsible for the most recent suspicious package sent to CNN.

The news network said FBI is investigating the package. He added that CNN's screening process is working.

Police were called at 9.38am to reports of a suspect package at an Atlanta post office.

The Time Warner Center, where CNN's NY operation is located, was evacuated on Wednesday after a suspicious package turned up there.

The CNN mail bomb was part of a spree of explosive devices sent to prominent Democrats and critics of President Donald Trump.

Sayoc, 56, is due to appear in court to face charges on Monday.

CNN is reporting that another suspicious package addressed to CNN studios has been discovered. 'All mail, at all CNN domestic bureaus, is being screened at off-site facilities'. On Friday, authorities arrested Cesar Sayoc for the mailed explosives and warned at the time that more such devices could already by in the postal system. The two sent last week were pipe bombs.

Sayoc's other targets included former president Barack Obama, former attorney general Eric Holder, Rep. Maxine Waters, D-Calif., former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, liberal billionaire George Soros and actor Robert De Niro, authorities said. "We were notified by the U.S. Postal Inspection Service".

The new package bore the same markings and stamps as the others.

The FBI has confirmed that the package recovered at the Atlanta facility was addressed to CNN.

The announcement comes three days after the Federal Bureau of Investigation arrested Cesar Altieri Sayoc and accused him of trying to send improvised explosive devices to high-profile Democrats and media targets.
