POPE WAS KNOCKED DOWN BY A WOMAN


A shaken Pope Benedict has said Christmas Mass in St Peter's Basilica shortly after being knocked over by a woman spectator who jumped barriers.
The woman, said to be mentally unstable, jumped security barriers as Benedict XVI entered the basilica for the traditional Christmas Eve service.
  • Proceeding with the Mass, he looked shaken and stumbled over some words.
  • The service started two hours early because officials do not want the 82-year-old pontiff to get tired.
  • The security incident involving the woman at St Peter's Basilica lasted only a few seconds.
  • The woman who was reportedly wearing a red jumper tried to jump the barrier and the Pope was thrown off balance and fell, prompting shocked gasps among the crowd.
  • Security officials rushed down the main aisle to detain the woman.
  • The woman who pushed the Pope also knocked down Cardinal Roger Etchegaray, who was taken to hospital for a check-up, Vatican spokesman Ciro Bedettini said.
  • The woman whose name was not immediately known was later arrested by police.
