Rather than keeping him at arm’s length, Hillary Rodham Clinton is embracing President Barack Obama _ sometimes even literally. As she prepares for another presidential campaign, Clinton has aligned herself with Obama far more than she has disagreed with him. She had been expected to separate herself from the president to avoid appearing as though she’d simply carry out his third term. (AP Photo/Manuel Balce Ceneta, File)

Suspected explosive devices were sent to former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and former US President Barack Obama, the US Secret Service has said.

It comes two days after a bomb was found at the home of liberal philanthropist and financier George Soros in the suburbs of New York City.

The devices were discovered by technicians who screen mail sent to the former US officials.

The Time Warner building in New York was also evacuated due to a package.

CNN, which is located in the Time Warner building, evacuated its newsroom over the incident, CNN president Jeff Zucker confirmed in a statement. -BBC
