FBI Investigating Suspicious Packages Sent to Military, Intelligence Sites
Six packages containing explosive components were sent to military and intelligence sites in Washington, D.C., on Monday, authorities said. The packages were all sent by mail, with the first reported at the National Defense University before similar parcels turned up at the CIA’s mail-sorting facility, a White House mail-sorting facility, a U.S. Navy facility, and other military sites, NBC News reported. The FBI is examining the packages to determine whether they were all sent by the same person, but federal officials have said they don’t believe the Austin bomber sent the parcels. One official cited by NBC News said rambling letters were included with some of the packages, but no further details were given on the content.
