发表时间:2018-10-27内容来源:VOA英语学习网

We have confirmation now of two more suspicious packages that were found this morning. A law enforcement official says a suspicious package addressed to former Vice President Joe Biden was found in New Castle County, Del. And a spokesperson for the New York City Police Department confirms to NPR that another suspicious package was sent to the actor Robert De Niro, who is a prominent critic of President Trump. NPR's Hansi Lo Wang is in New York reporting on this story. Hi there, Hansi.

HANSI LO WANG, BYLINE: Good morning, David.

GREENE: All right, let's go through these. Let's start with the package that was apparently sent to former Vice President Biden. What do we know at this point?

WANG: Well, details are really still coming in. But what we know for sure is, as you mentioned, that it was sent to New Castle County, Del. And Delaware, of course, is the home state of former Vice President Joe Biden. And that was confirmed by a law enforcement source who spoke to our colleague Ryan Lucas.

GREENE: And do we know anything about whether this is similar or connected to these other packages that were sent to prominent Democrats, like Hillary Clinton, yesterday that we've been speaking about this morning?

WANG: Well, the source we spoke to — our colleague Ryan Lucas — did confirm that it does resemble other suspicious packages that have been discovered this week. And authorities are really still investigating exactly what's inside of it and what we may learn, the motives here.

GREENE: The governor of New York, Andrew Cuomo — we spoke to him this morning. He was telling us about this package that was sent to Robert De Niro's home in Tribeca. He said that this, another one, seems to be similar to the other ones we've been talking about. What, so far, are police in New York saying about that one?

WANG: Well, it was discovered around 4 a.m. Eastern — very early this morning. And it was discovered in Manhattan's Tribeca neighborhood. And NYPD, they stopped traffic, sent in a bomb squad. This was near the address of a restaurant owned by Robert De Niro. And the NYPD is telling me that it also is similar to other packages that have been discovered this week and, specifically, it contains a device that was similar to what was recovered from CNN's office in New York yesterday. And the NYPD described that device yesterday as an explosive device.

GREENE: Are police saying anything yet about any possible suspects or what could be motivating someone to do this?

WANG: Right now, not yet. But today's discoveries really fit a clear pattern that has emerged. You know, Robert De Niro, former Vice President Joe Biden — they joined a growing list of outspoken critics of President Trump, top Democrats. You know, it's really remarkable. This list includes, you know, former President Barack Obama, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, former CIA Director John Brennan, former Attorney General Eric Holder, U.S. Congresswoman Maxine Waters and liberal philanthropist George Soros. These are all people who have received packages, bombs, this week.

GREENE: Hansi, Governor Cuomo said that he was putting a lot of security in place at transportation hubs all around the city and around the state of New York. Are you feeling that this morning?

WANG: Well, there have been some traffic disruptions, specifically in the Tribeca neighborhood. And certainly, NYPD is keeping a close watch because we don't know if there could be more packages discovered later today or later this week.

GREENE: All right, Hansi Lo Wang, NPR correspondent based in New York City. Hansi, thanks.

WANG: You're welcome.

经证实,今天早上又有两个可疑包裹被发现。一名执法官员表示,寄给美国前副总统乔·拜登的可疑包裹在特拉华州纽卡斯尔县被发现。纽约市警察局一名发言人向NPR新闻证实,另一个可疑包裹寄给演员罗伯特·德尼罗,众所周知他是特朗普总统的批评者。NPR新闻的王汉斯将从纽约带来详细报道。你好,汉斯。

王汉斯连线:早上好,大卫。

格林:好,我们来梳理一下。先来说寄给前副总统拜登的包裹。我们目前了解到了什么情况?

王:详细信息还在源源不断地传来。不过目前我们能确定的是,如你所说,该包裹寄往特拉华州纽卡斯尔县。当然,特拉华州是前总统乔·拜登的家乡。我们的同事瑞安·卢卡斯采访的一名执法人员证实了这一消息。

格林:就这一包裹是否与寄给其他知名民主党人士的包裹相似或有关,我们有了解到什么信息吗?比如我们今天早上报道的昨天寄给希拉里·克林顿的那个包裹?

王:我们的同事瑞安·卢卡斯采访的那名执法人员证实,这个包裹的确与本周发现的其他可疑包裹很相似。目前有关部门仍在继续调查,调查内容包括包裹里的东西以及我们能了解到哪些动机。

格林:我们今天早上采访了纽约州州长安德鲁·科莫。他表示,寄给罗伯特·德尼罗的包裹的收件地址是他位于翠贝卡区的家。他说,这个包裹似乎和我们报道过的其他包裹很相似。截至目前,纽约警方有没有提供这个包裹的相关信息?

王:该包裹在美国东部时间今天凌晨4点左右被发现。发现地位于曼哈顿翠贝卡区。纽约市警察局立即中断交通,并派出拆弹小组。发现地在罗伯特·德尼罗的餐厅附近。我从纽约市警察局得知,这个包裹也与本周发现的其他包裹相似,尤其是,包裹里的装置与昨天CNN纽约办公室发现的很像。纽约市警察局昨天称该装置是爆炸装置。

格林:警察有没有谈及可能的嫌疑犯或嫌犯的动机?

王:目前还没有。但是今天的发现与逐渐显现的一个清晰模式非常相符。罗伯特·德尼罗和前副总统乔·拜登加入了公开批评特朗普总统的名单,这个名单包括多名民主党高层人士,而且名单还在增加。这一点非常值得注意。名单上的人有前总统巴拉克·奥巴马、前国务卿希拉里·克林顿、前中央情报局局长约翰·布伦南、前司法部长埃里克·霍尔德、美国国会女议员玛克辛·沃特斯以及慷慨的慈善家乔治·索罗斯。这些人都在本周收到了炸弹包裹。

格林:汉斯,纽约州长科莫表示,他将在纽约市以及纽约州各处的交通枢纽实施安全措施。你今天早上有感受到吗?

王:的确有一些交通中断,翠贝卡区尤为明显。当然,纽约市警察局正在密切关注这些事件,因为我们不知道今天晚些时候或本周晚些时候是否还会有更多的包裹被发现。

格林:好,以上是NPR新闻驻纽约市记者王汉斯带来的报道。汉斯,谢谢你。

王:不客气。
