Suspicious package headed to CNN's Atlanta headquarters intercepted

Last week, one of the 13 pipe bombs that were sent to various Democratic public figures ended up at the CNN offices in NY.

"This package would not have come directly to CNN Center, even if it hadn't been intercepted first".

Spokesman Kevin Rowson said via email that the agency had been notified by the U.S. Postal Inspection Service of a suspicious package that arrived at 400 Pryor Street in downtown Atlanta, which is the address of a post office.

The parcel was "was intercepted at an Atlanta post office", CNN President Jeff Zucker told staffers in a memo, according to the network.

Those 14 bombs include two sent to CNN's headquarters in Manhattan's Time Warner Center. The discovery of the package on October 24 forced the evacuation of Time Warner Center in Manhattan and sent its anchors out to the street in the Columbus Circle area to cover the chaotic scene. While the previous two bombs were addressed to critics of Trump - former CIA Director John Brennan and former National Intelligence Director James Clapper - in care of CNN, this third device was intended for CNN.

Cesar Altieri Sayoc faces a number of federal charges, after the FBI accused him of sending improvised explosive devices to high-profile targets last week. It was addressed to Time Warner Center.

Atlanta Police have confirmed they responded to a suspicious package at a post office Monday morning.

On Monday, following the interception of the suspicious package in Atlanta, Zucker said the same protocol would have applied in that incident. The FBI hasn't yet said what the package contained.

Sayoc, 56, was arrested Friday near Fort Lauderdale, Florida and hit with federal charges alleging he mailed at least 13 bombs.
