US intercepts 'suspicious' letter to Obama
A letter addressed to US President Barack Obama containing a "suspicious" substance has been intercepted.

The US Secret Service said the letter was identified at a remote facility where White House post is screened.

It arrived at the facility on 16 April, the same day a letter intended for a US senator tested positive for the lethal toxin ricin.

That letter had been intended for Roger Wicker, a Republican senator representing Mississippi.
