    WASHINGTON -- The U.S. Capitol and White House were evacuated Wednesday. War planes were seen flying overhead and security cars rushed away from the buildings.

    Reporters in the White House were told to move to a more secure location.

    President Bush was not at the White House at the time.

    A guard in the West Wing of the White House shouted at reporters, "Go down into the basement."

    "Leave, run," security officers shouted to staff and reporters at the Capitol.

    "This is not a drill," guards shouted as they moved people away from the building.
