A White House spokesman said President Barack Obama was "briefly relocated" after a single-engine airplane strayed into restricted air space near the US Capitol on Friday. The White House was locked down for a short time. Press secretary Robert Gibbs says Obama was briefly relocated during the feared security breach. He would not say where Obama was taken. Shortly after the incident, Obama kept a scheduled afternoon appearance in the Diplomatic Reception Room to discuss affordable college education.
