Just as the FCC was about to vote on eliminating its net neutrality rules this afternoon, FCC Chairman Ajit Pai was interrupted by a staffer and then called for a break in the meeting.
"On advice of security, we need to take a brief recess," Pai said.

A security official then advised attendees to leave all of their belongings in place, and everyone left the meeting room. According to a running camera used by The Washington Post for Facebook Live, police soon swept through the room with dogs. Initially, there was no word on when the meeting will continue.
