Suspicious package headed to CNN’s Atlanta headquarters intercepted

CNN headquarters in Atlanta Georgia

CNN disclosed Monday that another suspicious packaged addressed to the all-news cabler has been discovered at a postal facility in Atlanta.

The Atlanta police responded to a call from the city's postal facility at 9:38 a.m. Monday, and the Federal Bureau of Investigation was taking a lead in investigating the incident.

Zucker announced that there is no imminent danger to the CNN Center. Authorities said last week that even after Sayoc was arrested, additional devices might be found that had already been placed in the mail.

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

Sayoc was scheduled to appear in court in Miami again on Friday. 'All mail, at all CNN domestic bureaus, is being screened at off-site facilities'.




Sayoc was arrested Friday in Florida after investigators said they identified him through fingerprint and DNA evidence.

According to CNN president Jeff Zucker, there is no current threat to the network's employees, and furthermore that all mail is being delivered and screened at a secure site beforehand.

Other intended recipients included ex-vice president Joe Biden, Hollywood actor Robert De Niro, billionaire donor George Soros, former CIA director John Brennan, former intelligence chief James Clapper, ex-attorney general Eric Holder, Congresswoman Maxine Waters, Senators Cory Booker and Kamala Harris, and billionaire investor Tom Steyer.

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. His social media shows he was an ardent defender of the president and virulent critic of Trump's opponents. Last week, two of the packages believed to be mailed by suspect Cesar Sayoc were addressed to CNN.
