> The light private Cessna ignored calls from air traffic controllers and

> the Capitol before turning away, authorities said.
> The plane's approach sent at least two F-16 fighter jets into the air
> over the U.S. capital and hundreds of staff and tourists into the
> streets outside the Capitol building, White House and Supreme Court in
> an urgent evacuation.
> Capitol police swiftly moved senators, aides, lobbyists and
