The White House was placed on lockdown when a suspicious package was thrown over a fence onto the North Lawn a few minutes after Barack Obama had arrived, officials reported.

The unidentified perpetrator, reportedly a woman, was immediately taken into custody, and the container is currently being checked by security. Fire trucks and hazardous materials response units were dispatched to the area.

The incident comes just a week after an alert was raised when party balloons flew over the White House and landed on the roof of the press office and Eisenhower Executive Office Building.
