Two pipe bombs found outside the Republican and Democratic national headquarters in Washington on Wednesday each contained timing devices, according to a report published Friday afternoon, according to a person familiar with the examination who spoke with the New York Times.
The FBI did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
The bombs were each about 12 inches long by an inch and a half wide. The steel pipe devices were made with a battery, steel wool, and an unknown explosive powder. One of them was found with a cellphone that may have been meant to detonate it.
The bombs were not triggered and were later defused by federal agents from the FBI.
