Palestinians vandalize Obama banner ahead of visit

Palestinians have vandalized a banner bearing President Barack Obama's image just days before his visit.

 

The Palestinians tore down the banner, hurled shoes at it and spray painted it with swastikas. Associated Press TV video showed a taxi driving over the banner before it was set on fire in the West Bank town of Bethlehem on Monday. Obama arrives in Israel on Wednesday. He heads to the West Bank Thursday.(AP)
