ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) — Two pilots who completed a record-breaking flight across the Pacific Ocean in a helium-filled balloon returned to New Mexico on Sunday to the sounds of mariachi music and an enthusiastic and emotional welcome
A man who climbed a bicycle rack outside the White House fence on Sunday has been charged with unlawful entry, the U.S. Secret Service said. Agency spokesman Brian Leary said the suspect did not make it over the bike rack, which is set back from the presidential residence's fence on Pennsylvania Avenue. The Secret Service, which protects the president and other U.S. leaders, has come under scrutiny after a series of security lapses. In September, an intruder jumped the White House fence and got into the building before being apprehended.
