From Associated Press, we learn that the New York City Police were called to The New York Times this afternoon after the newspaper received an envelope containing a suspicious-looking powder.
A worker opened the envelope, which contained a "white powdery substance," at about 12:30 p.m. It's not immediately known what the substance was.
Police and a Times spokeswoman, Catherine Mathis, said the envelope also contained an editorial with an "X" through it. The employee went to a hospital to be examined, but was showing no symptoms or injuries.
