Statues and structures around the White House were vandalized during a Gaza cease-fire protest on Saturday. The National Park Service is still assessing the extent and cost of the damage. The cleanup effort is focused on Lafayette Square. The U.S. Secret Service reported no arrests or permanent property damage to the White House. Protesters graffitied statues and structures, including a sculpture of General Comte de Rochambeau and Andrew Jackson. The cleanup effort is underway, with most of the graffiti on the Andrew Jackson statue already removed. Some graffiti was also found outside the park. Little evidence of the protest remained in front of the White House.
