WASHINGTON, DC - A man scaled the White House fence and was quickly seized by armed agents.
The unidentified man, a middle-aged white male wearing sunglasses, climbed over the wrought-iron fence along Pennsylvania Avenue and ran for several yards toward a fountain on the North Lawn.
Uniformed Secret Service agents and black-clad sharpshooters carrying automatic weapons converged on the man. He was handcuffed and led away.
Witnesses heard the man say he was a victim of terrorism who needed to see President Bush.
