washington - A man from the US state of Washington was arrested after sending several bombships to military locations in the US and a CIA office. According to the Federal Police FBI, the packages have not exploded.
The 43-year-old suspect was arrested Monday at his home in Everett, the FBI said. He would be brought before a Seattle court on Tuesday afternoon.
In one of the cases at Fort McNair, a building had to be evacuated after a package had been delivered there. Bomb experts from the army confirmed that the package contained explosives and established that a wick was attached to it.
