Barack Obama’s maiden trip to Israel as US President has not started as smoothly as planned.
“The Beast limo”, famed for its apparent robustness, broke down after a driver reportedly filled the famous vehicle with diesel instead of petrol.
The vehicle, which was meant to transport Obama around Jerusalem, grounded to a halt on the motorway between Tel Aviv’s Ben Gurion Airport and Jerusalem.
Most of the “Beast’s” specifications are classified for security reasons but it does protect against a biochemical attack whilst a blood bank of the President’s blood type is concealed in the boot.
President Barack Obama set aside Middle East politics today to marvel at the beauty of the ancient archaeological city of Petra.

President Obama appealed to young Israelis to pursue the path of peace with the Palestinians, during his visit to Israel.
