NYPD investigate 'suspicious powder' at WSJ

The Associated Press

NEW YORK — Police have evacuated the mailroom of The Wall Street Journal  and another floor of the newspaper's building after several envelopes were opened that contained a suspicious white powder.

Police say at least four envelopes were opened and others were left unopened in the mailroom Wednesday. The Journal said it had received more than a dozen envelopes containing the substance.

The newspaper says on its Web site that the mail was addressed to several executives. The return address was Knoxville, Tenn.

One of the evacuated floors is used by newspaper executives and editorial page employees.

The powder is being tested, and those who came into contact with it have been isolated.

The Journal is published by Dow Jones & Co., a division of the media and entertainment company News Corp.
