Kuwait Times - - HEALTH & SCIENCE -

The Hil­lary Clin­ton cam­paign says four peo­ple have been ex­am­ined by med­i­cal per­son­nel af­ter a white pow­dery sub­stance ar­rived at a New York cam­paign of­fice and they have re­ported no health is­sues.

Cam­paign spokesman Glen Caplin said fed­eral and lo­cal of­fi­cials de­ter­mined the sub­stance was non-haz­ardous; he pro­vided no fur­ther de­tails yes­ter­day. Po­lice say pre­lim­i­nary tests showed the sub­stance found Fri­day in an en­ve­lope at Clin­ton’s Man­hat­tan of­fice, where mail is re­ceived, was not harm­ful. A po­lice spokesman de­clined to iden­tify what the sub­stance was. The en­ve­lope ar­rived around 5:30 p.m. Fri­day. It was taken to Clin­ton’s Brook­lyn head­quar­ters and the 11th floor there was evac­u­ated.
