Rockets hit southern Israeli town as Obama visits Middle East

Security officers investigate the scene of a rocket attack in a southern Israeli town near the Gaza border. The strike comes a day after U.S. President Barack Obama arrived in Israel for a three-day tour. One of the residents said the attack took him by surprise. (SOUNDBITE) (Hebrew) PARTUSH PORON, RESIDENT OF SDEROT, SAYING: "We woke with the strange whistle of the rocket. We thought the alarm was a mistake. We didn't realise that something like this would happen, it was very strange." There were no reports of injuries. It is the second time rockets launched from Gaza have hit Israel since a truce ended an eight-day cross-border war in November. Obama's second day in the Middle East will include a visit to Ramallah in the West Bank for meetings with Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas.
