The NYPD is investigating the package found at the Time Warner Center, CNN said, citing sources within law enforcement. The network added that it evacuated its newsroom “as a precaution.”
The Secret Service said earlier on Wednesday that bombs sent to the house of former President Bill Clinton and his wife Hillary in Westchester County, New York, and the office of former President Barack Obama in Washington, DC were intercepted during a routine mail check. On Monday, a package containing an explosive device was found near the home of billionaire and Democratic Party donor George Soros, located not far from the Clintons.
CNN also reported earlier that a bomb addressed to the White House was intercepted, but this information was not confirmed officially.
The Time Warner Center is located at Columbus Circle in Manhattan near Central Park. Police have cordoned off the area around the building.
