Suspicious package addressed to CNN intercepted in Atlanta

ATLANTA (WAVY/AP) — A suspicious package addressed to CNN has been intercepted in Atlanta, CNN Communications said in a tweet.

CNN President Jeff Zucker announced that there is no imminent danger to the CNN Center.

Zucker says all mail to CNN has been screened offsite since last week, when a series of package bombs began appearing around the country. One of those bombs was mailed to CNN offices in New York.

Atlanta Police have confirmed they responded to a suspicious package at a post office Monday morning.

An initial hearing is set for Monday afternoon in Florida federal court for 56-year-old Cesar Sayoc, who faces five federal charges. Sayoc was arrested Friday in Florida after investigators said they linked him to the packages through fingerprint and DNA evidence.
