Jewish institutions were among the intended recipients of the suspicious packages examined by US authorities on Friday, according to various media reports.

New details regarding the suspicious United Parcel Service packages being examined by US authorities were publicized Friday evening, as major US media noted that all the suspicious packages discovered by authorities were shipped from Yemen using UPS.

Unnamed US law enforcement sources were described by different media sources as stating that the listed shipping addresses for two of the four packages were a Jewish synagogue and Jewish community center in Chicago.

None of the packages were said to have actually contained explosives, but the first package discovered was designed to appear as an explosive device.
