The U.S. Secret Service said Wednesday that reports of a suspicious package addressed to the White House are "incorrect."
"CLARIFICATION: At this time the Secret Service has intercepted TWO suspicious packages - one in NY and one in D.C. Reports of a third intercepted package addressed to the WH are incorrect," the agency wrote in a post on Twitter.
Earlier in the day, CNN reported that a package apparently containing a pipe bomb that was addressed to the White House was intercepted Wednesday, citing a law enforcement official.
The report came after the Secret Service said Wednesday that "potential explosive devices" were addressed to former President Barack Obama in Washington and ex-presidential candidate Hillary Clinton in New York.
The Time Warner Center building in New York City on Wednesday was evacuated following a report of a suspicious package addressed to CNN, which has its New York bureau based in the building. In a briefing Wednesday afternoon, New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio called the sending of a live explosive package to CNN an "act of terror."
