Explosive device found at home of George Soros

An explosive device found in a mail box outside the New York residence of billionaire financier George Soros on Monday, police said, and according to the New York Times it was detonated by bomb squad technicians in a nearby wooded area.
Soros, 88, is a target of a hostile media campaign by the nationalist government in his native Hungary and a hate figure for right-wing campaigners in eastern Europe and the United States.
Authorities responded to the home in Katonah, New York after receiving a call about a suspicious package at about 3:45 p.m., the Town of Bedford Police Department said in a statement.
An employee at the residence opened the package, revealing what appeared to be an explosive device. The employee put the package in a wooded area and called authorities, police said.
Bomb squad technicians arrived and detonated it, a police official told the New York Times.
Online records showed that Soros resides at the address. He was not home at the time, the New York Times reported.
