A 56-year-old man has been arrested in Florida in connection with a mail-bombing campaign aimed at critics of President Donald Trump.
US officials named the man as Cesar Sayoc, saying that more arrests could follow.
Mr Trump said the acts were “despicable and have no place in our country”, and promised “swift and certain justice”.
Twelve items have been sent in recent days to figures like ex-president Barack Obama and actor Robert de Niro.
The latest two were found in Florida and New York City on Friday. -BBC

Amazing how everyone holds their breath in anticipation of finding out the mail bomb suspect’s political affiliation forgetting that while BOTH sides are to blame for this toxic political climate, the perpetrator is solely responsible for his actions.
