Pope Benedict XVI Knocked Down by a Woman at 2009 Christmas Eve

Pope Benect XVI yesterday night when he was on regular procession towards the basilica altar for conducting traditional mass of the Christmas eve, he was caught up by unusual event when a woman emerges near him and through quick events left the Pope Benedict on the floor. He was not hurt on this little fracas, but for sure he must have been shocked from the incidence.
The following are series of photos as taken by Vatican video.

The woman in red vaulting the wooden barrier cordoned off the basilica's main aisle
Trying to grab the pontiff's vestments, and eventually knocked him down

The clergy puzzled by the very fast event behind them leaving the Pontiff down, the guards in black suit rushing back to rescue the situation

Pope Benedict helped by aides during the mass for Christmas eve on 24th Dec 2009

Normal business and calm in St Peter Basilica as seen yesterday night.
The woman who made this fracas was handled to the Vatican police.
This is the second major event occuring within Italy (Vativan being within...) following the recent punched off on face to Italian Premier by alleged mentally disturbed gentleman, this time is suspected mentally disturbed lady caught the attention of media!!
