A number of suspicious packages caused alarm and evacuations Wednesday and a major government effort to find out who's responsible. The people they were addressed to included former U.S. President Barak Obama, 2016 Democratic Presidential nominee Hillary Clinton, former Attorney General Eric Holder, former CIA Director John Brennan and California Democratic Representative Maxine Waters. The package labeled for former CIA Director Brennan was sent to CNN at New York City's Time Warner Center.

That led to the evacuation of CNN's New York Bureau. Several of the packages had the same return address, the Florida Office of Democratic U.S. Representative Debbie Wasserman Schultz. That return address was also on a package delivered to the home of George Soros earlier this week. He's a billionaire investor and major donor to the Democratic party. Officials do not suspect that Congressman Wasserman Schultz sent the packages. Devices found inside several of the packages appeared to be pipe bombs. That's according to an FBI counterterrorism agent in New York. Law enforcement officials say it looks like they were made in the same way.

All of them were intercepted before any of the people they were addressed to could open them. No one was hurt. In the past, President Donald Trump has criticized several of the people the packages were addressed to. But on Wednesday he said that threats or acts of political violence had no place in America. New York Mayor Bill DeBlasio called the mailings an act of terror and the FBI is asking anyone who might have information on those responsible to contact them.

Next this Thursday, we've reported on the rising tensions between Russia and the allies of NATO, the North Atlantic Treaty Organization which the U.S. is part of. The Commander of the U.S. Naval Forces in Europe says one thing that concerns him when it comes to Russia is submarine warfare. Why?

For one thing, he says six of the Russian subs operating in the Black Sea or the eastern Mediterranean Sea have a type of missile that could reach any of the capitals of Europe. That's likely to be on the minds of other NATO commanders as they begin their largest military exercise since 2002. It's called Operation Trident Juncture. It launches Thursday in Norway and the region around it.

周三,多个可疑包裹引发恐慌和疏散,目前政府正在尽力查明肇事者身份。收到可疑包裹的人包括美国前总统巴拉克·奥巴马、2016年民主党总统候选人希拉里·克林顿、前司法部长埃里克·霍尔德、中央情报局前局长约翰·布伦南以及加州民主党众议员玛克辛·沃特斯。原本寄给中央情报局前局长布伦南的包裹被寄到了CNN位于纽约时代华纳中心的办公地点。

这导致CNN纽约办公区紧急疏散。多个包裹的寄件地址是同一个,即美国民主党众议员黛比·沃瑟曼·舒尔茨位于佛罗里达州的办公室。本周早些时候寄到乔治·索罗斯住址的包裹也写得是这个寄件地址。索罗斯是亿万富翁投资家,也是民主党的主要捐赠者。官员认为这些包裹不是国会议员沃瑟曼·舒尔茨寄的。在多个包裹内发现的装置好像是管状炸弹。这是一名纽约FBI反恐特工提供的情报。执法官员表示,看起来这些炸弹是用同样的方法制作的。

所有包裹都在收件人打开之前被截获。没有人受伤。多个收件人为唐纳德·特朗普总统曾批判的对象。但是周三,总统表示,这种威胁或政治暴力行动在美国没有容身之地。纽约市长比尔·白思豪称炸弹包裹是恐怖主义行为,联邦调查局要求有肇事者线索的人和他们联系。

下则新闻,我们曾报道过俄罗斯和北约盟友之间不断升级的紧张局势,北约全称为北大西洋公约组织,美国是成员国之一。美国驻欧洲海军司令官表示,在谈到俄罗斯时,他其中的一个担心是潜艇战。为什么?

他说,其一,俄罗斯在黑海或地中海东部部署的6艘潜艇配备有可以打击到欧洲任何一国首都的导弹。这很可能也是北约其他指挥官担心的问题,所以他们从2002年开始举行最大规模的军事演习。这一军演名为“三叉戟接点”。该军演于周四在挪威及附近地区展开。
