An unfortunate incident took place at Northeastern University in Boston. The FBI is looking into the matter to find the culprit behind this attack. As reported by USA Today, a package was delivered to the Northeastern Boston Campus to Holmes Hall, and it exploded when a staff member opened it.
The explosion took place around 7 pm in the evening on September 13. A spokesperson for Northeastern University confirmed that the bursting of the package led to minor injuries to a staff member. The staff member is getting treated for the injuries from the explosion. An unknown person aged around 45 years old who has been injured in the blast is given the primary medical facilities and has been shifted to the hospital safely.
