The NYPD warned the city's financial firms Wednesday to monitor their mail after the German headquarters of Deutsche Bank received a letter bomb addressed to its CEO.

The bomb, which contained shrapnel, did not detonate. Nobody was injured, CNN reported.

"The return address was listed as a European central bank, which would likely increase the chances of him opening it," NYPD spokesman Paul Browne said in a statement.

The police increased security around Deutsche Bank's offices in New York as a precaution. A bank spokesman in the city declined to comment.
