Lincoln Memorial vandalism photos

The Lincoln Memorial was temporarily closed Friday after someone splattered a splash of green paint on the statue. The memorial, one of the most popular sites on the National Mall, is generally open around the clock to visitors.

Police say the apparent vandalism was discovered early Friday morning. No words, letters or symbols were visible in the paint.
