Report: Obama limo malfunctions shortly before arrival

March 20, 2013 1:05 P.M. (Updated: March 21, 2013 9:39 A.M.)
TEL AVIV, Israel (Ma’an) – Shortly before US President Barack Obama arrived in Israel Wednesday, one of the limos malfunctioned at Israel’s Ben Gurion International Airport, reports said.

To avoid any changes to Obama’s very busy schedule, American and Israeli officials exerted huge efforts to quickly bring another limo from Jordan, according to Israel's Channel 10.

Hebrew-language websites described the malfunctioning limo, brought from Washington specially for the visit, as the first unforseen incident during Obama's three-day visit to the region.

Obama is scheduled to leave the airport to Jerusalem in a helicopter. A parade of Black Hawk helicopters will follow the presidential helicopter carrying his delegation.
