WTXF-TV obtained a photo of one of the packages addressed to Biden, which used his full name and included a return address for Florida Rep.

Other officials said the devices contained in the envelopes were similar to one found in the mailbox of the Soros home and later detonated by police. The package was placed into a bomb disposal truck and driven to an NYPD firing range in the Bronx.

Sources told CBN News, the parcel was "the same" type as those containing pipe bombs sent to prominent Democrats this week, including former President Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton, and CNN's NY bureau.

De Niro has clashed with Donald Trump several times - once branding him a "national disaster".

On Thursday, without directly referencing the explosive devices, Trump again blamed the media for the "anger" in society.

Federal law enforcement authorities looking into the possibility of a possible explosive device addressed to Biden swept his DE home Wednesday but nothing was found. The package was addressed to former CIA Director John Brennan.

All the people who were targeted, including former US President Barack Obama, former Secretary of State and presidential candidate Hillary Clinton and Eric Holder, who served as attorney general under Mr Obama, are frequently maligned by right-wing critics.

President Donald Trump said that these threats "have no place in America".

Several packages containing pipe bombs packed with shards of glass have been intercepted in the last few days.

Turkish police search Saudi consul's home in Khashoggi probe
The Washington Post , citing U.S. intelligence intercepts, says the Saudi crown prince ordered an operation to trap Khashoggi. Turkish officials have said they believe he was killed there although this has not been confirmed by Saudi Arabia.

Another suspicious package, similar to the ones sent to Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton, Joe Biden and Bill Clinton on October 24, was intercepted in New York City in the early hours of October 25.

Another pointed out the device sent to CNN was wrapped in an Islamic State flag, although it was identified as a parody version of the distinctive design. "That doesn't mean he can't have bombs that are operational". He condemned the terrorist acts - without calling them terrorist acts - as "egregious conduct" that is "abhorrent to everything we hold dear and sacred as Americans".

Trump took a softer tone at a rally in Wisconsin on Wednesday, saying, "Let's get along". "Have you ever seen this?"

A suspicious package has been found at a premises in NY connected to actor Robert De Niro.

"We are responding to reports of a suspicious package in the vicinity of Greenwich and Franklin streets in Tribeca, Manhattan", said an NYPD statement on October 25.

Two similar-looking packages addressed to California Congresswoman Maxine Waters - another fierce Trump critic - were also intercepted, the bureau said.

"Our baby-in-chief - the j***-off-in-chief, I call him - has put the press under siege, ridiculing it and trying to discredit it through outrageous attacks and lies", De Niro said.

UPDATE (8:20 a.m.): CBS New York is reporting that the Time Warner building in New York City has been evacuated after another possible explosive was found in the mail room. The packages are believed to be "pipe bombs", volatile by their very nature.

"Public safety is our number one priority, and we are taking all necessary precautions to ensure the safety and security of New Yorkers", Cuomo said today, adding the move was made "out of an abundance of caution".
