WASHINGTON D.C.: A small drone crash-landed on the grounds of the White House early on Monday (Tuesday in Manila), prompting officials to declare a security lockdown until they were able to determine that it posed no risk. The device was spotted shortly after 3:00 am (8:00 a.m. Manila time) by a uniformed Secret Service officer on the south grounds of the White House complex, the US Secret Service said in a statement. The drone was operated by a government employee who told the Secret Service he did not mean to fly the device over the White House grounds, the New York Times reported.
