Bush to Travel to Ramallah by Car Due to Fog


US President George W. Bush will be forced to travel by car to visit with Palestinian Authority Chairman Mahmoud Abbas in Ramallah Thursday morning.

Israel Police announced the following streets will be closed for the motorcade:  King David, King Solomon, Chaim Bar-Lev, Sayeret Duchifat, Uzi Narkiss Bridge and the Hizme crossing.
