WASHINGTON, Oct 25: US President Donald Trump has called on people to be more civil in politics, after a series of suspected explosives were sent to high-profile US figures just weeks ahead of the mid-term polls.
None of the packages exploded. The Federal Bureau of Investigation has launched a hunt for their sender, the BBC reported.
Trump was speaking after parcels were sent to top Democrats, including former President Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton, besides New York Governor Andrew Cuomo, and media offices of CNN and the San Diego Union-Tribune, who are all prominent targets of right-wing criticism.
Suspected bombs were sent to locations in New York, the Washington DC area and Florida, authorities said on Wednesday. All the apparent targets were regularly criticised by conservatives -- especially by President Trump. - IANS
