An explosive device was found in the Hungarian politician and billionaire George Soros’s mailbox at his Westchester County Home in Bedford, Massachusetts. Local authorities stated that the device was found and exploded by bomb squad technicians. No one was injured.
According to nytimes.com, the suspicious package was found by one of the house’s employees and was immediately reported to the police. The package was taken to a location farther from the house while the employee was waiting for the authorities. George Soros was away from home.
“An employee of the residence opened the package, revealing what appeared to be an explosive device,” the police said in a statement. “The employee placed the package in a wooded area and called the Bedford police.” – wrote The New York Times.
The police stated that the case had been turned over to the F.B.I., who are currently investigating but remain silent and do not respond to any inquiries.
The town of Bedford is 50 miles north from Manhattan and has been home to many American celebrities, like Martha Stewart, Glenn Close and Ralph Lauren. The town is known for its quiet and peaceful atmosphere and the lack of gossip between residents. John Stockbridge, Bedford’s historian, said:
“They look to Bedford as to being protective of their privacy. I’ve been here for 35 years, and I don’t remember any incident like what you’re talking about.”
George Soros is not only unpopular in Hungary but remains to be the favourite target of every right-wing political party across the globe.
