A day after an explosive package was discovered at a post office at the norther city of Migdal Ha'emek, police sappers were examining a suspicious envelope sent to Ra'anana from Hong Kong.

A postman who was distributing mail in the city alerted police, who contacted the family to check whether they were expecting a letter from Hong Kong.

National police headquarters in Jerusalem issued an order to cease mail delivery throughout Israel on Monday, following the discovery of the alleged explosive package in Migdal Ha’emek. Police said Monday that citizens are advised to exercise great caution when receiving any mail throughout the day.
