'White powder' sent to Barack Obama's office - just 24 hours after similar package sent to Donald Trump Jr

Police are launching an investigation after someone sent an envelope with white powder to former President Barack Obama's offices in Washington, D.C.

Officials were able to determine the substance was harmless and was, in fact, baby powder, but it tied up traffic and caused concern for people in the West End area between Dupont Circle and Georgetown.

Mr Obama has leased offices in the building since he left the White House in 2017.
