Holy Femen! Topless feminist grabs baby Jesus statue

FEMINIST protest group Femen have staged a demonstration in St Peter's Square after the Pope's Christmas address, grabbing a statue of a newly-born Jesus from the square's nativity scene.  

Leader of the Femen movement, Inna Shevchenko, grabbed the statue with the words "God Is Woman" daubed in large letters on her chest.  

Ms Shevchenko was immediately detained by a Vatican guard who covered her with his cape before she was escorted to a local police station.  

The guard also wrestled the Jesus figurine away from her.  

Although the incident occurred well after Pope Francis delivered his Christmas message from the balcony of St Peter's Basilica, thousands of pilgrims were still in the famous square.
