A topless female protester in Paris has detained by police tried to jump into the motorcade of U.S. President Donald Trump along the Champs Elysees as he made his way to the commemoration ceremony for Armistice Day in Paris.
Source report that the woman came within a few meters of Trump’s motorcade before she was apprehended by police, in an incident that is likely to raise questions about security at the event attended by some 70 world leaders.
Most of the world leaders attending the Armistice Day ceremony in Paris were transported to the site in buses.
Trump and Russian President Vladimir Putin chose not to ride on the buses. The White House says Trump’s arrival was dictated by “security protocols.”
Femen, the radical feminist activist group, based in Paris, appeared to take responsibility for the demonstration.
Femen leader Inna Shevchenko wrote on Twitter: “FEMEN activists ‘welcomed’ the cortege of @realDonaldTrump twice on his way to Arc de Triumph.”
