The FBI is currently conducting an investigation into the pipe bomb packages, which were delivered or intercepted over the past few days. The White House has said it will provide full support to the agency and law enforcement officials to find the person or persons responsible for mailing the parcels.
On Thursday morning, authorities found two more packages thought to contain explosives that were sent to former Vice President Joe Biden and another one delivered to actor Robert De Niro's film company in Manhattan.
The FBI has warned that additional packages could be en route to other targets and that the public should not touch, move or handle any suspicious or unknown packages.
