Topless Feminist Grabs Jesus Figurine at Vatican; Woman's Message on Her Torso: "God Is Woman"

A bare-breasted woman from the Ukrainian-centered feminist group Femen -- who snatched the baby Jesus figurine from the St. Peter's Square Nativity scene on Christmas day -- remained under arrest today (December 26, 2014), the AFP (Agence France-Presse) website reports.

The Ukrainian woman, Iana Aleksandrovna Azhdanova, remained under arrest in a Vatican cell awaiting trial for "disturbing the peace, obscene acts in a public place, and theft" for storming the Vatican Nativity scene on December 25.

Using Femen's topless protest dress code in order to increase public attention, Azhdanova was bare from the waist up, and sported the message "God Is Woman" on her torso to thousands of pilgrims packed into St. Peter's Square who looked on.

Azhdanova was apprehended by Vatican police after she rushed to the Nativity scene and grabbed the baby Jesus figurine while shouting anti-religious slogans.
