The network said the package was “similar” to those allegedly sent by Cesar Sayoc to high-profile Dems.

 

A suspicious package addressed to CNN was intercepted Monday morning at an Atlanta post office, according to CNN President Jeff Zucker.

Zucker said in a statement on Twitter that there was “no imminent danger to the CNN Center” and that packages sent to CNN bureaus are being screened off-site.

A CNN spokesperson confirmed to HuffPost that the package was addressed to the CNN Center in Atlanta. Atlanta Police could not immediately confirm the report.

CNN anchor Jim Sciutto reported that the package was “similar to prior packages” sent to high-profile Democrats last week. A man named Cesar Sayoc was arrested Friday in Florida in connection with those packages, which included unexploded pipe bombs. At least one of them also contained unidentified white powder.
