Another small plane has violated restricted airspace over the nation's capital.

This time there were no evacuations. But the Senate did recess briefly.

The Homeland Security Department says military jets intercepted a private Cessna, that later landed in Gaithersburg, Maryland -- north of the capital.

The intrusion comes two weeks after another plane caused emergency evacuations of the White House and Capitol.
