Bombs Found at Barack Obama's Office, Home of Hillary and Bill Clinton in New York City Suburb

NEW YORK: A bomb was found at the the home of former US President Bill and Hillary Clinton in a New York City suburb on Wednesday evening and a similar device was also sent to the office of former US President Barack Obama in Washington.


This comes just a day after an explosive device found in the mailbox at the New York home of US billionaire and liberal donor George Soros, who had supported Hillary in the 2016 US election against Donald Trump. 


According to the New York Times, the devices sent to the home of the Clintons and Obama's office were similar to the one found at the home of Soros on Monday.

An official said investigators believe the explosives to be linked. The official wasn't authorized to publicly discuss an ongoing investigation and spoke on condition of anonymity, Associated Press reported.

The motive of the would-be bomber or bombers remained unclear, one of the officials said, adding that there had not yet been any claim of responsibility.

The explosive device sent to the Clintons was discovered early Wednesday morning at their home in Chappaqua, New York. Police in New Castle, New York — who cover Chappaqua — say they assisted the FBI, Secret Service and Westchester County authorities in "the investigation of a suspicious package.

The device that was sent to Soros's home was constructed from a length of pipe about six inches long. It was filled with an explosive powder and it was “proactively detonated” by bomb squad technicians.
