A topless protester ran into U.S. President Donald Trump’s motorcade as it drove down the Champs-Elysees to an Armistice Day event with world leaders.
The woman, who was quickly detained by police, came within a short distance of the president’s limousine, which was driving slowly toward the Arc de Triumph. Femen, an anti-war group with origins in Ukraine known for topless protests at high-profile events, claimed credit for the incident.
A second topless protester was detained as she attempted to clear barricades that had been erected for the event. The women appeared to have the phrase “Fake Peacemakers” daubed on their torsos. Femen claimed three protestors breached the barrier.
