Vatican Activist Arrest

FILE - In this Thursday, Dec. 25, 2014 file photo, a gendarme from the Vatican's security forces stops a Ukrainian feminist group Femen activist after she snatched the statue of Baby Jesus from the Nativity scene set in St. Peter's Square at the Vatican. The Vatican says it has arrested the Femen activist who on Christmas Day bared her chest and snatched the statue of Baby Jesus in the life-size Nativity scene in the center of St. Peter's Square. Vatican spokesman the Rev. Lombardi said Friday that Ukrainian activist Yana Zhdanova was being held for questioning, and noted that the incident aimed to "intentionally offend the religious feelings" of numerous people. Possible charges include carrying out obscene acts in public, insults and theft. (AP Photo, File)
