The FBI said via its Twitter account that the recovered package was "similar in appearance to others" and confirms the announcement earlier in the day by CNN President Jeff Zucker, who said a suspicious parcel being sent to the network had been intercepted at an Atlanta post office.

Law enforcement outside the apartment building where Cesar Sayoc's mother lives in Aventura, Fla., on October 26. After Sayoc's arrest Friday, authorities warned that more packages might still be circulating through the mail system. One of source said authorities found several different of potential targets.

An initial hearing is set in Florida federal court for Cesar Sayoc, 56, who faces five federal charges.

Sources familiar with the probe say Sayoc told Federal Bureau of Investigation agents and other authorities that he did not mean to hurt the targets during a brief interview at their South Florida field office. He's accused of sending more than a dozen packages to George Soros, Hillary Clinton, former President Barack Obama, Rep. Maxine Waters (D-Calif.), and others.

Shackled and handcuffed to a chain around his waist, Sayoc appeared hoarse when he spoke his name out loud in response to US Magistrate Judge Edwin Torres' questions.

Outside the court, defense attorney Jamie Benjamin called the charges "flimsy" and accused the government of trying Sayoc in the media, forcing judgment before the case has gone to court.
