Explosive devices were discovered in mail sent to Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama.

The Secret Service said: “We have intercepted two suspicious packages addressed to Secret Service protectees”.

According to The New York Times, these protectees were revealed to be the former president and secretary of state.

One of the IEDs (improvised explosive device) was sent to Clinton’s home in New York while the other, intended for Obama's residence, was intercepted in Washington DC.

They were discovered by technicians who regularly screen mail the former US official's mail.

“The packages were immediately identified during routine mail screening procedures as potential explosive devices and were appropriately handled as such,” said The Secret Service in a recent statement.

“The protectees did not receive the packages nor were they at risk of receiving them.”

The incident comes just days after a pipe bomb was found in liberal philanthropist George Soros' mailbox at his home. He is often publically criticized by right-wing groups for his leftist views.

Officials were able to interfere and dispose of the potentially harmful device before it detonated. 

There has been no official connection between the bomb sent to Soros and those mailed to Clinton and Obama.

CNN headquarters were also sent an explosive device in the post which was intercepted by technicians before any harm was done.

The Today Show claimed the package was labelled with the return address of a prominent Democratic official, clearly a phony sender chosen to make a political statement.

More on this to come.


If you're of an awkward disposition and can't bear to watch people embarrass themselves on national television, we suggest you sit this one out.

If, however, you love nothing more than watching people spout absolute nonsense when approached by someone with a microphone, sit back and enjoy what Jimmy Kimmel has to offer this week.

As part of his long-running Lie Witness News segment, Jimmy had his reporter ask the good people of LA if Hillary Clinton should be impeached.

That's right, impeached… despite the fact she doesn't have a job to be impeached from.

And what did they say?

Well, let's take a look here….



Put the kettle on, The Late Late Show line-up is looking pretty well this week.

As the US presidential election is heating up, more and more people want to know about the private lives of the presidential candidates.

And when Hilary Clinton hugged her nephew after her nomination acceptance speech at the Democratic National Convention last week, everyone wanted to know who that man was.

Well, his name is Tyler Hilton and he's an aspiring model who just graduated from California's Loyola Marymount University this past May.

Since catching everyone's attention with that hug, pictures of Tyler have surfaced online from a shoot he did with photographer, Adina Doria.

Adina told ET Online: "He was incredibly professional, very well-mannered and a truly genuine person. He was friendly to everyone on set and arrived early to location."

However, if you're hoping he's a single pringle, you're going to be disappointed as the photographer also let slip that Tyler has a girlfriend: "I learned he and his girlfriend are very active in the LGBT rights movement," she added.

Ah well, you win some, you lose some.



Half a dozen terrifying coordinated attacks on the city of Paris have left scores of its citizens dead. 

Carried out by eight or more terrorists, it is believed that at least 120 people lost their lives during last night's tragedies, although no official death-toll has been confirmed. Another 200 have also been injured – 80 seriously.

This morning, terror group Isis formally claimed responsibility for the tragedy via its propaganda agency, the al-Hayat Media Centre.

The Department Of Foreign Affairs has said that one Irish citizen is among the injured.

President Francois Hollande has now called a state of emergency – the first declared by France since the end of World War II – in response. Border control has also been stringent in the aftermath and 1,500 soldiers have been deployed onto the capital's streets.

The metro is currently shut, and all schools, museums, libraries, gyms, swimming pools and food markets in Paris are closed today.

Residents are still being urged to stay inside and a curfew may be issued again this evening. 

The largest single number of fatalities – officially 87 but possibly as many as 118 – took place at the Bataclan concert hall, located just a few hundred metres from the Charlie Hebdo magazine offices.

There, Californian rock band Eagles Of Death Metal (on Monday they performed at the Olympia in Dublin) were playing a gig to an audience of 1,500 when four men stormed the venue, taking more than 100 people hostage.

Although the band themselves survived unharmed, the terrorists subsequently began randomly shooting dozens of others, reloading their weapons three or four times during the attack.

And as armed French authorities surrounded the venue a little after midnight, five bomb blasts were heard: the attackers detonated their explosive vests just as police arrived.

"I found myself inside the concert hall when several armed individuals burst in, in the middle of the concert," Julien Pearce told The Guardian. 

"Two or three men, without masks, came in with Kalashnikov-type automatic weapons and began shooting blindly at the crowd."

Clearly shell-shocked, Mr Pearce went on to describe the attack as "extremely violent".

"They knew what they were doing," he added of the killers. "They were very young."

Another witness at the Bataclan described the situation to The Telegraph as "carnage". They stated that before opening fire, one of the gunmen had asked: "What are you doing in Syria? You're going to pay now."



  • The attacks had begun on Friday evening at 9.20pm local time (8.20pm Irish time) at two popular restaurants – Le Petit Cambodge, and Le Carillon – both on trendy Rue Bichat in the 10th arrondissement. Close-to a dozen were believed to have been killed.
  • Within minutes, another shooting then took place at La Casa Nostra, a nearby Italian restaurant – resulting in five fatalities.



  • Shortly afterwards, there were two suicide attacks and one bombing near the Stade de France where the national team were playing Germany in a friendly soccer match. At least five died.
  • La Belle Équipe, a restaurant on the Rue de Charonne in the 11th arrondissement was then attacked, with gunmen killing 18.
  • French SWAT forces storm the Bataclan, where dozens of hostages are being held. Although the siege concludes at 1am, at least 87 die – including four policemen. 


In January in Paris, a series of attacks that began at the Charlie Hebdo offices saw 17 people lose their lives.

Last night, Facebook kicked-off its Safety Check app, which allowed people in the area to tell their family and friends that they were safe. 

Meanwhile, several landmark buildings around the world – including the Empire State building in New York, the CN Tower in Toronto and Dublin's Conference Centre – lit up in the French colours of blue, red and white in a show of solidarity.

Flags globally are also flying at half mast as a sign of respect.

Most flights to and from Paris were this morning operating normally, although Aer Lingus says it is offering passengers the option to change their flight for free.
