Suspicious device sent to NY state governor’s office: Cuomo

NEW YORK, Oct 24, 2018 (BSS/AFP) – New York’s Democratic governor Andrew
Cuomo on Wednesday announced that a suspicious device was also sent to his
office in Manhattan, after apparent pipe bombs were sent to CNN and Hillary
Clinton’s home in the state.

“A device has been sent to my office in Manhattan,” Cuomo told a news
conference. “The device sent to my office has been identified and is being
handled as we speak.”

The governor, who is a trenchant critic of US President Donald Trump and
who is seeking a third term as chief executive of the country’s fourth most
populous state, said he “wouldn’t be at all surprised” if more devices show
up.
