"That looks like an intentional manipulation of the system, to try to get it to go to the congresswoman (Wasserman Schultz)". Meanwhile, another suspicious package forced an evacuation of CNN offices at the Time Warner Center in New York Wednesday morning.

He said the building has been evacuated, and the bomb squad is en route.

The developments, which unfolded rapidly and continued steadily into the afternoon, touched off fear and confusion and immediately invited questions about the motives of those responsible. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., called them "attempted acts of domestic terrorism".

CNN's latest coverage confirms that a suspicious package was intended for former Attorney General Eric Holder, but it was sent to the wrong address.

The first package, which turned up on Monday, was addressed to Soros, the billionaire financier and advocate of liberal, open-border values who is a frequent target of right-wing conspiracy theories.

Another law enforcement official told CNN that the initial examination of all of the devices shows them to be constructed similarly. The pipe bombs were packed with powder and shards of glass. The devices are rudimentary but functional. Debbie Wasserman Schultz as the return address. There is no information to suggest she sent the packages.

New York City Police Commissioner James O'Neill says investigators are reviewing security video to see if they can identify a courier believed to have delivered the pipe bomb package to CNN's office.

Joe Biden: Authorities are trying to track down a package addressed to the former vice president, two law enforcement sources told CNN on Wednesday night.

Later Wednesday, the Federal Bureau of Investigation said two additional packages addressed for Rep. Maxine Waters had been intercepted that were similar in appearance to five others.

Those targeted were a virtual litany of US President Donald Trump's favourite subjects of criticism in tweets and at campaign rallies, from his "lock her up" slogan for Clinton to his denunciation of CNN as "fake news".

NY officials described the devices sent to CNN as "pipe bomb" devices.

Wasserman Schultz didn't attend a fundraiser for U.S. Congressional candidate Donna Shalala in Coral Gables with Clinton as planned Wednesday.

An Obama representative referred questions to the Secret Service. "The president, and especially the White House press secretary, should understand their words matter".

Trump retweeted Vice President Mike Pence's statement condemning the packages and added, "I agree wholeheartedly!"

There have been times, such as with the recent spate of bombings in Austin, Texas, as well as with the notorious Unabomber, when each device had a different "signature" in an attempt to throw off authorities or as the person making the devices tested and finessed their technique.

The devices had suspicious-looking packaging, and at least one had a timer that can be bought for a few dollars online and should be easily detected when mailed or delivered. It matches the description of those sent to the other officials. Cuomo then said a "device" was sent to his Manhattan office, though an NYPD spokesperson has since said that was not true. The NYPD increased patrols in areas linked to public figures and at media offices.

"This investigation is of the highest priority for the FBI", Wray said in a statement.
