Ottawa: Police in Canada are investigating after a severed human foot was mailed to the headquarters of Prime Minister Stephen Harper`s political party and a second body part was found in a separate package elsewhere.

The foot arrived at the Conservative Party headquarters yesterday in a blood-soaked box. Police say it was addressed to the party and not to a specific person.

A second body part, reported to be a hand, was found at a postal facility late yesterday. Police didn`t release any details.
Opposition Liberal member Justin Trudeau today called the packages horrific.
