CNN Worldwide president Jeff Zucker notified staffers about the new package in a Monday morning memo. The package appears to be identical to the ones sent last week to several prominent Democratic leaders.

CNN obtained a photo of the package, which appears to be identical to the ones sent last week to several prominent Democratic leaders and CNN's NY offices. Sayoc was arrested Friday in Florida after investigators said they identified him through fingerprint and DNA evidence.

CNN emphasized that mail sent to its NY offices is now being screened at an offsite facility, as is the case for all mail sent to CNN's domestic bureaus.

"All mail, at all CNN domestic bureaus, is being screened at off-site facilities as of last Wednesday", he explained.

He added that the media "must stop the open & obvious hostility & report the news accurately & fairly". Trump condemned the Pittsburgh attack as an act of anti-Semitism and has denounced political violence.

The two packages that authorities say Sayoc directed to CNN previously were targeted at former director of national intelligence James Clapper and former CIA director John Brennan.

It's not yet clear whether the package in Atlanta is similar to more than a dozen that were intercepted last week - all of them using the address of Rep. President Trump has faced mounting criticism for what many commentators feel is his divisive political rhetoric and alarmist efforts to galvanize GOP voters in the November 6 midterm election. The FBI and Atlanta police were called to a post office some 1.2 miles from CNN headquarters around 9:30am.

The new package will be transported to the Federal Bureau of Investigation laboratory in Quantico for analysis.

President Donald Trump on October 26. praised law enforcement efforts to capture the suspect. The post office was evacuated and surrounding streets in downtown Atlanta were shut down.

"This morning, another suspicious package addressed to CNN was intercepted at an Atlanta post office".

Sayoc is being prosecuted in NY, so his Florida hearing will likely be brief and process-oriented.

Authorities have said the previous packages contained possible bombs made of six inches of PVC pipe, a small clock, a battery, wiring and what authorities termed "energetic", or possibly explosive, material.

Authorities say Sayoc faces more than 50 years in prison if convicted on all charges.
