Investigators and bomb squads were called to a post office in Atlanta on Monday about a suspicious package sent to CNN, the Federal Bureau of Investigation said Monday, just hours before a court hearing for a Florida man accused of sending packages containing explosive material to prominent Democrats.
This morning, an Atlanta post office intercepted what was deemed a suspicious package addressed to CNN Center where CNN Atlanta is headquartered.
"There is no imminent danger to CNN Center", Zucker said, in a statement about the package. On Friday, authorities arrested Cesar Sayoc for the mailed explosives and warned at the time that more such devices could already by in the postal system. Two in the previous batch directed to CNN, one of which sparked an evacuation of the organization's office in NY. Since then, the network has instituted additional mail security.
Sayoc, 56, is due to appear in court to face charges on Monday.

That package was addressed to former Central Intelligence Agency director John Brennan, who actually works for NBC.
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.
The FBI has confirmed that the package recovered at the Atlanta facility was addressed to CNN.
CNN said the package appeared similar to those which prompted a nationwide scare last week. Sayoc was arrested on Friday and was formally charged on Monday. He is being prosecuted in NY, so his Florida hearing will likely be brief and process-oriented.
