US: ISIS flag spotted on pipe bomb mailed to CNN
CNN’s Jim Acosta has shared images of a pipe bomb mailed to the network’s New York studio. Twitter users have zoomed in the image and said they appear to show an ISIS flag.
The photos show a rudimentary pipe bomb, delivered in a brown manila envelope to the Time Warner Center in New York City, home to CNN’s studios.
Curiously, the package was addressed to former CIA Director John Brennan, who now regularly appears on CNN to bash President Trump.
As for a return address, the sender gave Florida Congresswoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz’ office address. Wasserman Schultz herself was the recipient of a similar package on Wednesday, which police later confirmed contained an explosive device.
Law enforcement sources told CNN that the package was delivered by courier.
Secret Service agents revealed on Wednesday they had intercepted two packages en route to former President Obama’s Washington D.C. home and Hillary and Bill Clinton’s property in Chappaqua, New York.
A U.S. official said that investigators believe the explosive that was discovered near the Clintons’ home in Chappaqua, New York, is linked to one found Monday at the compound of George Soros.
The official said one of the packages had the return address of Rep. Deborah Wasserman Schultz, an ironic reference to the former chairwoman of the Democratic National Committee.
The package addressed to Obama was intercepted Wednesday by Secret Service agents in Washington.
