Mailboxes stand outside the entrance to a house owned by philanthropist George Soros in Katonah N.Y. a suburb of New York City Tuesday Oct. 23 2018. A device found outside the compound

The package appeared to be an explosive device, police said.

Federal investigators were reviewing surveillance video to determine whether the package containing the bomb had been sent through the mail or delivered some other way, officials said. Respect for a diversity of opinions is fundamental to open society and that is the work that George Soros has devoted his life to.

Authorities say the device contained explosive powder and bomb components, but did not go off on its own. Soros was not home at the time.


The device was found in a mailbox outside the 88-year-old's NY residence, police said.

Soros, a hedge fund manager and liberal philanthropist, is reportedly worth more than $8 billion and has been a long-time - and major - donor to Democratic causes.

A Hungarian government spokesman said: "The matter falls under the jurisdiction of US authorities".


The billionaire investor has long backed liberal, pro-migrant and pro-democracy causes, and previous year made his Open Society Foundations one of the biggest non-profits in the world, by donating $18 billion to the NGO. He has also been the target of numerous conservative conspiracy theories. Sources revealed the bomb was meant to target Soros.

Soros has repeatedly denied such allegations.

US-based right-wing conspiracy theorists and websites have accused Mr Soros of secretly engineering a range of recent events in United States and global politics.


Activists frequently post on social media the addresses of his homes, sometimes along with threats. "George Soros deplores violence of any kind, and urges politicians across the political spectrum to tone down their rhetoric".
