The White House was briefly put on lockdown today, as fighter jets were scrambled in Washington following an airspace violation, CNBC reported.

A small aircraft violated airspace rules in a restricted area.

The lockdown was lifted less than 30 minutes after it was first reported by White House reporters.

CNBC also reported that a security alert was raised at the Capitol building.
