WTOP: Packages explode at Md. state government buildings

WASHINGTON - Two packages have exploded in Maryland state government buildings.

A government official tells WTOP one package was at the Jeffrey Building in downtown Annapolis and another was at the Maryland Department of Transportation headquarters in Hanover.

Maryland State Police say there were no serious injuries, although a spokesman for Annapolis Mayor Joshua J. Cohen says a mail room employee was hurt in the Annapolis incident. The extent of the employee's injury was not immediately known.

State agencies have ceased all mail operations until hazardous materials crews can investigate.
