Bomb Squad Searches Florida Post Office

The FBI has searched a mail facility near Miami, as investigators try to find who is behind a series of suspected explosive packages.

Devices have been sent to eight high-profile people, including ex-President Barack Obama and actor Robert De Niro.

Unnamed officials told US media that investigators believe at least one was sent from Florida.

The FBI have not released any details of their investigation.

Similar packages have also been sent to former Vice President Joe Biden and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, among others.

The postal facility searched is in Opa-locka, where security footage was being scrutinised. A bomb squad and canine unit accompanied federal officials, Miami-Dade County Police said.
