WASHINGTON (AP) _ The U.S. Park Police have closed the Lincoln Memorial on the National Mall in Washington after someone splattered green paint on the statue and the floor.

The apparent vandalism was discovered early this morning by an officer on patrol.

Police say no words, letters or symbols were visible in the paint. The memorial will remain closed until the National Park Service can finish cleaning up the paint.
