INTERNATIONAL: Intruder prompts White House evacuation

Published:Saturday | September 20, 2014 | 9:42 AM

Secret Service agents briefly evacuated part of the White House after an intruder was spotted running through the grounds.

The intruder was seen shortly after President Barack Obama left the building last night.

Witnesses said they saw a man jump the fence and run towards the building's North Portico.

Staff and reporters working in the complex were escorted out and taken away from the premises.

On the anniversary of the 9/11 attacks last week, the Secret Service arrested a man who jumped over a fence.
