Posted: Updated:

WASHINGTON (AP) -- The U.S. Park Police in Washington say the Lincoln Memorial is temporarily closed after someone splattered green paint on the statue and the floor.

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

Police say the memorial on the National Mall will be closed until the National Park Service can finish cleaning up the paint. That's expected to happen Friday morning.
