Halloween is right around the corner, and this week's news fit the mood.

A series of suspicious packages containing pipe bombs was sent to prominent Democrats and Trump critics this week. Recipients included the CNN office in New York City, the Clintons, the Obamas and former vice president Joe Biden.

None of the devices has gone off and nobody has been injured.

Authorities made an arrest in connection to the case on Friday morning.
