Police Block Streets in Jerusalem for Obama


In Jerusalem, residents were told to stay in doors or remain standing where they were by police and army personnel stationed for the security of visiting U.S. President Barack Obama. The American president was on the way to Bethehem to visit with Palestinian Authority officials.

Along Derech Hevron, a main road in the Talpiot and Geulim neighborhoods, side streets were blocked and guards were positioned to hold back any pedestrians. Crowds gathered on the corners to take photographs and videos.
