Explosives sent to Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama

Graphic News

October 24, 2018 -- An intense investigation is underway after explosive devices were sent to the homes of former U.S. President Barack Obama and ex-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, and to CNN offices in New York.

Two days earlier a bomb was discovered at the home of liberal philanthropist and financier George Soros in the New York suburbs.

Clinton, Obama, Soros and CNN are all prominent critics of President Donald Trump, and have been targets of recent conservative political attacks.

The packages were intercepted by the U.S. Secret Service personnel which screen mail sent to major political figures.

The pipe bombs were sent less than two weeks before the midterm elections.

21 days to go until NEW GRAPHIC NEWS - a new website for a new era.

28 years ago — April 2, 1991 — the original Graphic News launched using a precursor to today’s websites that used email technology. These enabled infographics to be delivered electronically around the world over telephone lines. What was possible was very limited - It took 10 minutes for a 100K file to download.

Since then delivery speeds and website technology have moved on. The new website will offer the best online experience possible now, adding many new features (and offering new opportunities for the future), but still enabling existing users to select and download infographics and enjoy the distinct brand of visual journalism that is Graphic News.

Over the coming days I will give further information. Please contact me if you have any questions. Fiona Roberts, froberts @
