LONDON - A man has been arrested after scaling a perimeter wall at Buckingham Palace, the residence of Britain's Queen Elizabeth, London police said on Thursday.

Police said the man was detained in the palace's grounds on suspicion of trespassing on a protected site shortly after 8.30 p.m. (1930 GMT) on Wednesday, seven minutes after an alarm was activated.
