MADRID (Reuters) – Spanish police said six letter bombs sent to high-profile targets in recent days appeared to have been posted from the northern city of Valladolid, a source close to the probe told Reuters on Saturday.

The devices were sent between November 24 and December 2 to destinations including Prime Minister Pedro Sanchez, the Embassy of Ukraine in Madrid, government offices, a European Union satellite company and the US Embassy.

Most were defused, although an employee at the Ukrainian embassy was slightly injured when one of the devices ignited.

No person has been identified as the sender of the packages, said the source, who asked not to be named to discuss the investigation.
