The package was sent to a Greenwich Street address in the Tribeca area owned by the Oscar-winning actor, adding to the pattern of explosive devices discovered on Wednesday at CNN and others sent to the homes of former President Barack Obama, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and CNN.

Emergency service officers were dispatched early Thursday to retrieve it.

Details suggested a pattern - that the items were packaged in manila envelopes, addressed to prominent Trump critics and carried USA postage stamps. Officials provided no details on a possible suspect or motive.

The official spoke on condition of anonymity because the official was not authorized to speak publicly. Since then explosive packages have been addressed to Bill and Hillary Clinton, former POTUS Obama, former Central Intelligence Agency director John Brennan (sent to CNN's offices in Manhattan), congresswoman Maxine Waters, who was sent two packages in Washington D.C. and Los Angeles, former attorney general Eric Holder in Florida, and former VP Joe Biden, also on Thursday morning, in Delaware.

The FBI said on Wednesday the packages consisted of a manila envelope with a bubble-wrap interior containing "potentially destructive devices". Debbie Wasserman Schultz, who was listed as the return address.

CNN has been a repeated target of Trump's attack, with the USA president often labelling the network as "fake news".

CNN evacuated its NY bureau after a pipe bomb was found in the mailroom together with an envelope containing white powder.

An NYPD spokesman said it was unclear if it related to the earlier mailed pipe bombs. Two packages were sent to Waters, who Trump has called "an extraordinarily low IQ person".

"There is a total and complete lack of understanding at the White House about the seriousness of their continued attacks on the media", said CNN president Jeff Zucker. Law enforcement authorities are treating the series of bombs as a domestic terror matter and are advising the public to remain vigilant.

Former US president Bill Clinton was at home at the time the package was discovered while Ms Clinton was campaigning in Florida. The Secret Service on Wednesday intercepted another package addressed to former president Barack Obama's Washington home.

Sirisena later issued an official gazette notification that declared the removal of Wickremesinghe and appointment of Rajapaksa . As of midnight on Friday, the Wickremesinghe-led United National Front remains the largest parliamentary group, with 106 seats.

O'Neill and other officials were responding to questions about photos that have been circulated of the suspicious devices that led some experts to wonder whether the items pose a real threat or whether they were meant to be a scare.

Addressing the Tony Awards earlier this year, the Taxi Driver star said: 'I'm going to say one thing: F*ck Trump.

The spree of bomb alerts kicked off on Monday with a device found at the NY home of billionaire liberal donor George Soros.

Neither the Clintons nor the Obamas received the packages, which were intended for delivery to their homes - the Clintons in Chappaqua, New York, and the Obamas in Washington.

The actor also said he wanted to punch the former Apprentice host "in the face".

The FBI is conducting an investigation into the matter, and has noted all packages have the same return address of Florida congresswoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz.

Later Wednesday, the Federal Bureau of Investigation said two additional packages addressed for Rep. Maxine Waters had been intercepted that were similar in appearance to five others.

One of the packages was recovered at a South Florida office of Rep.
