New York City police removed a suspected mail bomb from a Tribeca restaurant owned by actor Robert DeNiro, who has been a frequent critic of President Donald Trump, as US authorities investigate a spree of such packages sent to media and Trump opponents. Police received a call shortly after 4 a.m. Thursday reporting a suspicious package and responded to the Tribeca Grill restaurant owned by the actor and director, a New York Police Department source said. The package was removed and is being transported to an NYPD bomb squad facility in the Bronx, the source said. It was addressed to DeNiro personally and contained the same type of explosive device found in the Time Warner Center, where CNN is located, on Wednesday, a person familiar with the incident said. Law enforcement agencies are investigating apparent explosive devices addressed to frequent targets of conservative vitriol, including Democrats Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton and cable network CNN, as the FBI warned more such parcels may still be in circulation.
