An official source from the Presidency of the Republic confirmed to the island that the presidency had received an envelope suspected of containing “strange” material, according to the source’s description.
The source confirmed that the results of laboratory analyzes of the material have not yet been released.
Reuters quoted a local source as saying that the matter was related to a letter containing the deadly ricin gas powder, but the source said that he could not give more details in this matter that is being investigated.
The president is fine and well, thank God.

Noufal Said, the brother of the Tunisian president, also posted a post on his Facebook page, in which he said that President Qais Said is well and well.
The announcement of receiving the suspicious envelope comes amid great political tension in the country and anti-government protests against widespread unemployment and social inequality.
Said had said – in a speech at the National Security Council meeting this week – that there are conspiracies aimed at thwarting his work at home and abroad.
