The Secret Service says it has intercepted two suspicious packages that were addressed to former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton in Westchester County, N.Y., and former President Barack Obama in Washington, D.C.

“The packages were immediately identified during routine mail screening procedures as potential explosive devices and were appropriately handled as such,” the Secret Service said in a statement. “The protectees did not receive the packages nor were they at risk of receiving them.”

The package to Clinton was intercepted late on Tuesday, and the package to Obama was intercepted early Tuesday morning.

The Secret Service says it is investigating the incidents, using “all available federal, state, and local resources to determine the source of the packages and identify those responsible.” (NPR)
