WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Washington police and fire officials on Tuesday removed a powdery substance sent to the office building where former U.S. President Barack Obama leases space, but the material was found to be harmless, the U.S. Secret Service said.

A package “containing an unknown powdery substance” was discovered in the headquarters of the nonprofit World Wildlife Fund (WWF) in Washington, Secret Service spokesman Jeffrey Adams said in a statement.

“Preliminary investigation determined that the package was not addressed to any Secret Service protectees,” Adams said.
