Robert De Niro and Joe Biden latest targets as suspicious parcels found

Also sent packages were former CIA Director John Brennan, who had his security clearance withdrawn after frequently lambasting Mr Trump, prominent Democratic Party donor George Soros and California Representative Maxine Waters, another outspoken Trump critic.

Two additional packages were addressed to Obama's former vice president, Joe Biden, often rumored as a potential Democratic presidential candidate for 2020, in DE, the Federal Bureau of Investigation confirmed.

The suspected explosive device sent to Robert De Niro may have been sitting in the mailroom of his building for a day or more before it was discovered, according to law enforcement officials.

NY police have responded to a reported suspicious package at the restaurant owned by actor Robert de Niro in NY.

Federal authorities intercepted several more suspicious packages on Thursday morning, bringing the total to 10 suspicious packages found.

"Any acts or threats of political violence are an attack on our democracy itself", Trump said.

NYPD Lt. Thomas Antonetti told CNN that the package was received at 375 Greenwich Street and that the bomb squad is on the scene.

Djokovic cruises past Coric to win fourth Shanghai title
The 20-time Grand Slam victor and reigning champion Federer plays 13th seed Borna Coric of Croatia in Saturday's other semifinal. The 21-year-old Coric , who won the Halle title on grass earlier this year, fell to 2-3 in career finals.

The mailing of the devices come less than a fortnight before the United States mid-term elections.

"I've been governor of NY for seven years, I've faced many terrorism situations, and this works on multiple levels".

The company said in a statement on Thursday that its Manhattan building is open and deemed safe. "Clean up your act....try to act Presidential".

The devices are believed to be pipe bombs, inherently unstable, and at risk of being set off just by handling.

Ten explosive devices have been sent to high-profile newsmakers, including a news network, since late Tuesday. Debbie Wasserman Schultz as the return address.

Neither bomb got close to its intended target, and neither contained a written message, according to law enforcement officials, but the twin discoveries led to other undetonated devices being found elsewhere, including in the mailroom at CNN's NY headquarters and a district office of Rep.

"I have been informed by U.S. Capitol Police that my Washington, DC office was the target of a suspicious package that has been referred to the FBI", Waters said in a statement on October 24. But FBI and other investigators had been responding to a US Postal facility in DE that morning, FBI spokesman Dave Fitz said.

Death toll in Hurricane Michael continues to rise
A month after Hurricane Florence's epic deluge, SC officials are more concerned about tornadoes than flooding from Michael. The hurricane damaged hospitals and nursing homes in Panama City, and officials worked to evacuate hundreds of patients.

Speaking to reporters, White House press secretary Sarah Sanders was asked if Donald Trump would stop laying into political opponents given the recipients of the suspicious packages.

Those packages contained pipe bombs packed with shards of glass.

The mail-bomb spree began Monday with a device found at the NY home of billionaire liberal donor George Soros.

Earlier Wednesday, there was heightened law enforcement presence at the Chappaqua, New York home of Bill and Hillary Clinton after a device was intercepted at a nearby facility where the Secret Service screens their mail. "Your inflammatory rhetoric, insults, lies, & encouragement of physical violence are disgraceful". Each was a bubble-padded manila envelope bearing six stamps and a return address for Wasserman Schultz, a Florida Democrat and former chairwoman of the Democratic National Committee.

Trump took a softer tone at a rally in Wisconsin on Wednesday, saying, "Let's get along".

But at the same event, he blamed the media and on Twitter Thursday kept up the argument that the media plays a role. "BTW, your critics will not be intimidated into silence".
