The report noted that authorities confirmed that the bomb squad had "proactively detonated" the explosive device before it could go off on its own and cause mayhem.

An employee at the home of billionaire philanthropist George Soros founded a bomb in the mailbox and opened it Monday, according to local police.

"Out of an abundance of caution, we're in contact with people from the Soros organization and we are deploying CRC to locations that are located within New York City", NYPD Commissioner James O'Neill said.

In a recent piece, Sommer detailed why the right's obsession with Soros, who is Jewish, wreaks of anti-Semitism and is just the most recent historical expression of a very familiar pattern.

"It was not a hoax device", said the official, who spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to discuss the investigation.

The employee put the package in a wooded area and called police.

Authorities in Bedford - which includes the hamlet of Katonah, where the residence is located - said the case has been turned over to the Federal Bureau of Investigation's Joint Terrorism Task Force. Recently, conservative critics have, without evidence, accused him of secretly financing a caravan of Central American migrants to make their way north toward Mexico and the US. In 2017, Hungarian Prime Minister Orbán's billboard campaign against migration and foreign influence-which used an image of Soros-was widely seen as anti-Semitic.

Others have falsely accused him of being a Nazi collaborator during World War II, when he was a child in Hungary.

Activists frequently post on social media the addresses of his homes, sometimes along with threats.
