WASHINGTON (AP) — A heckler briefly interrupted Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's speech to Congress before U.S. Capitol police removed the protester from the chamber.

As Netanyahu was addressing a joint meeting of Congress, a woman in the gallery stood and shouted, "no more occupation, end Israeli war crimes."

Police immediately hustled her out of the gallery and Netanyahu continued speaking.
