    US federal authorities earlier intercepted two suspicious packages addressed to former President Barack Obama and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.

    A package with a suspicious device has been found at the building owned by actor Robert De Niro in the Tribeca area of New York, NBC reported, citing sources.

    CNN reported citing law enforcement officials that the package was addressed to De Niro.

    The NYPD's special bomb squad has removed the suspicious package, according to the latest reports.
