A suspicious package addressed to CNN's worldwide headquarters in Atlanta was intercepted at a nearby post office Monday morning, CNN President Jeff Zucker said in a memo.

The big picture: Two mail bombs addressed to CNN's New York offices were found last week — along with other devices addressed to prominent critics of President Trump — prompting the network to set up off-site mail screening.

Authorities have not yet commented on whether the incidents are connected.
