Suspicious packages sent to many state capitols

MONTGOMERY, AL (WSFA) - WSFA 12 News has confirmed that suspicious letters with white power much like the one sent to Alabama's state capitol building last week were sent to more than 40 other state capitols across the country.

The Federal Bureau of Investigation says additional letters were sent to several U.S. embassies overseas.

Last week's letter sent to Alabama's capitol prompting a Haz-mat scare but it turns out the powder was not dangerous.

The FBI says all the letters were postmarked in Texas, but they have no suspects at this time.
