Mysterious White Powder Arrives at Eight Federal Buildings in Northwest


Monday seems to have been the day for disconcerting plots on U.S. soil. The FBI is investigating letters containing an unidentified white powder that were mailed to eight federal buildings in seven different cities across Washington, Idaho, and Utah. The scares resulted in the evacuation of an IRS building and a U.S. attorney’s office, though no injuries were reported and field tests seem to indicate the powders were not hazardous. The FBI is looking into whether the eight separate incidents were linked, conceding it was “logical” that they would be.
