A 56-year-old man has been arrested in Florida in connection with a mail-bombing campaign aimed at critics of US President Donald Trump.
US officials named the man as Cesar Sayoc. He faces five charges including mailing explosives and threatening ex-presidents.
Mr Trump said the acts were “despicable and have no place in our country”.
Fourteen items have been sent in recent days to figures including ex-President Barack Obama and actor Robert de Niro.
Two were found in Florida and New York City on Friday morning.
