One of US President Barack Obama’s limousines has broken down in Israel.
The black, heavily guarded limousine experienced mechanical problems in Tel Aviv before Mr Obama landed in the country for a state visit.
Media reports said the vehicle was mistakenly filled with diesel rather than petrol.
The disabled limo was swapped for a back-up, and Mr Obama’s busy itinerary in Tel Aviv and Jerusalem on Wednesday was not affected.
“This is why we bring multiple vehicles and a mechanic on all trips,” US Secret Service spokesman Edwin Donovan said in a statement.
“Situations like this are planned for extensively by our advance teams so that the President’s itinerary is unaffected by these types of issues.”
The US President arrived in the Middle East on Wednesday for a three-day tour of Israel and the Palestinian Territories.
It is his first trip to the region since he first took office in 2009.
