Authorities are investigating a spate of potential explosive devices sent to prominent liberal figures and CNN’s New York studios, and the FBI has warned that more could still be discovered.

President Donald Trump said a federal investigation has been launched into the packages and called for bipartisan unity, even as critics have said he needs to take more responsibility for his own heated political rhetoric.

There have been no reported injuries or deaths from the devices, and authorities have not yet given any details about suspects or a motive.

Here’s a list of the 10 devices that have been found so far and who they were addressed to:

George Soros
The first device was discovered in Soros’ mailbox Monday at his suburban home outside New York City. Officials say it was likely delivered by hand rather than mail, allowing it to reach its destination undetected.

The Clintons
A Secret Service agent screening Bill and Hillary Clinton’s mail found the device that was address to their home in Chappaqua, New York. Like several others, the package’s return address listed Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D-Fla.), whose name was misspelled.

The Obamas
A package almost identical to the one found at the Clintons’ home was sent to Barack and Michelle Obama’s house in the Kalorama neighborhood of Washington. It was also intercepted by Secret Service before making it to the Obamas.

CNN and John Brennan
CNN’s New York Studio in the Time Warner Building was evacuated in the middle of Poppy Harlow and Jim Sciutto’s live coverage of the devices sent to the Clintons and the Obamas. The package delivered to the Time Warner Building was addressed to former CIA Director John Brennan, who has appeared on CNN criticizing Trump.

Eric Holder and Debbie Wasserman Schultz
The packages listed Wasserman Schultz in the return address, and one made it back to her Florida office. The package was incorrectly addressed to former Attorney General Eric Holder and was redirected to Schultz.

Rep. Maxine Waters
Two devices were addressed to Waters (D-Calif.), who has been a staple in Trump’s attacks on Democrats during his rallies. One device was addressed to Waters’ office in Washington, and the other to California, but both were stopped in screening facilities far from her offices.

Robert De Niro
A device addressed to De Niro’s Manhattan production offices was found by his office’s security personnel, police reported Thursday morning. Though not an elected official, the film star has openly criticized Trump in the past.

Joe Biden
Authorities are investigating two packages sent to the former vice president that were intercepted at Delaware mail facilities, one in New Castle and one in Wilmington.
