A suspicious package was reportedly mailed to CNN's office in Atlanta and intercepted on October 29, the network stated.

But earlier in the day, CNN President Jeff Zucker announced that a suspicious package addressed to the cable television network was intercepted Monday at an Atlanta post office.

CNN President Jeff Zucker sent a memo to staffers in which he assured them that "t$3 here is no imminent danger to the CNN Center".

On Monday, CNN reported that they received yet another "suspicious package" - the third such package in a week.

"Our screening process is working", Zucker told employees.

Police were called at 9.38am to reports of a suspect package at an Atlanta post office. Another was delivered to the cable network's NY offices last week, causing an evacuation.

Cesar Sayoc, 56, who was arrested Friday, was due to be arraigned in Florida Monday on charges of mailing 13 pipe bombs and authorities had cautioned that more might be in circulation.

The package was intercepted three days after a man was arrested for sending a wave of parcel bombs to prominent Democrats, critics of U.S. President Donald Trump and CNN.

The official said that investigators believe Sayoc made the explosives in his van and that authorities recovered soldering equipment, a printer, and stamps similar to those used on the package bombs.

Federal Bureau of Investigation spokesman Kevin Rowson said: 'We were notified by the US Postal Inspection Service. However, later in that same set of remarks (delivered at the White House to the Young Black Leadership Summit), Trump blasted the "fake news" and the crowd descended into shouts of "CNN Sucks". All these packages had former DNC Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz's Florida office as their return address.

Sayoc is accused of sending bubble-wrapped manila envelopes to Democrats such as Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton and Joe Biden. CNN was already sent a suspicious package.

None of the bombs detonated.
