White House press and staff allowed back in after brief evacuation

A Secret Service officer said the alert was sparked by an intruder who jumped over the White House fence.

White House staff and reporters returned to the building after being briefly evacuated tonight because of an intruder on the grounds, a Reuters witness said.

President Barack Obama had just left aboard the Marine One helicopter for Camp David, the presidential retreat in nearby Maryland, when armed, uniformed Secret Service personnel ordered the press corps and members of the White House staff to evacuate.

They were allowed back in after about half an hour, the witness said.
