Second suspicious package addressed to CNN intercepted at post office


A second suspicious package addressed to American news network CNN was intercepted at an Atlanta post office on Monday, CNN President Jeff Zucker said in a statement. However, he said, there was no imminent danger to the CNN Center.

This comes three days after a man was arrested for sending parcel bombs to several critics of US President Donald Trump.

“All mail, at all CNN domestic bureaus, is being screened at off-site facilities as of last Wednesday, so this package would NOT have come directly to the CNN Center, even if it hadn’t been intercepted first. Our screening process is working and we will keep you updated as we learn more,” Zucker said.

He also hit out Trump for the “continued attacks on the media”.

“There is a total and complete lack of understanding at the White House about the seriousness of their continued attacks on the media. The President, and especially the White House Press Secretary, should understand their words matter. Thus far, they have shown no comprehension of that.” Zucker said.
