PHILADEL­PHIA >> A Philadel­phia man in­jured when a pack­age ex­ploded as he opened it last week says he’s re­cov­er­ing at home and over­whelmed by the sup­port he’s re­ceived from his part­ner, fam­ily and co­work­ers.

Sixty-year-old James Alden says he’s still heal­ing from shrap­nel wounds to his face, chest and arms and faces ad­di­tional surg­eries to re­pair his badly dam­aged left hand.

The FBI, fed­eral Bureau of Al­co­hol, Tobacco, Firearms and Ex­plo­sives and U.S. Postal In­spec­tors are work­ing with Philadel­phia po­lice to de­ter­mine who put the bomb in the padded en­ve­lope that ex­ploded when Alden opened it Nov. 22.

Alden re­ceived it the evening be­fore and as­sumed it con­tained asthma in­halers.
