CNN Atlanta mailed another suspicious package

Suspicious package addressed to CNN intercepted in Atlanta on Monday

Suspicious package addressed to CNN intercepted in Atlanta on Monday

One of those bombs was mailed to CNN offices in NY.

This is the second suspicious package addressed to the media company in less than a week.

A CNN spokesperson confirmed to HuffPost that the package was addressed to the CNN Center in Atlanta.

CNN's NY bureau was targeted last week with two apparent mailed explosives, which authorities believe were part of a string of 14 suspicious packages sent to public figures and well-known Democrats across the country.

The package was intercepted at a post office in Atlanta, where the network is headquartered, according to a statement from CNN's president, Jeff Zucker. "Our screening process is working and we will keep you updated as we learn more."The incident on Wednesday at the NY bureau prompted a mass evacuation while CNN anchors Poppy Harlow and Jim Sciutto were reporting on air. 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", CNN said in a statement".

There was no immediate word from authorities on Monday about whether the suspicious package in Atlanta is linked to last week's wave of mail bombs.

Among those targeted with mail bombs were former president Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton, Trump's Democratic rival for the presidency in the 2016 election. Sayoc was arrested Friday in Florida after investigators said they linked him to the packages through fingerprint and DNA evidence.

Sayoc, 56, is due to appear in federal court Monday afternoon for a hearing in Florida.
