(ABC NEWS) The Secret Service said it is "aware" of a photo that appeared to show an image of an ISIS flag in front of the White House.
If authentic, the photo showed a hand holding up an image of a flag for ISIS (also known as ISIL or Islamic State), displayed on a smartphone, on Pennsylvania Avenue in front of the White House fence. That area, closed off to street traffic, is frequented by thousands of tourists every day.
It was tweeted from an apparently pro-ISIS Twitter handle @sunna_rev on Aug. 9.
