Explosive device found near Soros' NY home – report

An explosive device was reportedly found Monday near George Soros' home in NY state, though it did not explode.

The Bedford Police Department said it received a call from the residence regarding a suspicious package.

Neither local nor federal authorities would say whether the object was capable of exploding, but The New York Times reported it was detonated by bomb squad technicians.

Several law enforcement agencies were dispatched, including the FBI and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, both of which tweeted that there was no immediate threat to public safety.

"The employee placed the package in a wooded area and called the Bedford police".

An explosive device was found on Monday at the Westchester, N.Y., home of billionaire George Soros.

Officers said the FBI's terrorism task force is investigating.

Mr Soros has become a frequent target for criticism by right-wing groups due to his support for liberal causes.

Billionaire Soros, an 88-year-old survivor of Nazi Germany-occupied Hungary, made his fortune running a hedge fund.

After he won re-election in April, Orban wasted no time in pushing a "Stop Soros" bill created to crack down on non-governmental organisations, think tanks and other liberal institutions.

A Hungarian government spokesman said: "The matter falls under the jurisdiction of USA authorities".

As such, Soros has become a favorite boogeyman for the far right in the US and parts of Europe.

US-based right-wing conspiracy theorists and websites have accused Mr Soros of secretly engineering a range of recent events in U.S. and global politics.
