The Secret Service said that a man who made verbal threats against President George W Bush and had a suspicious package was arrested on Monday outside the north fence of the White House.



Secret Service spokesman Ed Donovan said 28-year-old Aleksandar Aleksov, of New Jersey, was taken into custody just before 2 pm (1900 GMT) on Pennsylvania Avenue and was charged with making threats against the president. Donovan said Secret Service officers overheard the threats.



Donovan says the package was later found not to be dangerous.
