WASHINGTON (WKOW) -- The NAACP offices in Washington have been evacuated after employees discovered an envelope containing white powder.
NAACP Washington Bureau Director Hilary Shelton says the business-sized envelope contained a typewritten letter and a plastic bag filled with white powder. The envelope was addressed to the civil rights organization's office in downtown Washington without a return address.
Employees called the police and promptly left the office.
In October and November 2001, five people were killed after coming in contact with anthrax in their mailings.
