Draghi suffers quantative uneasing in Frankfurt

A woman protesting against European Central Bank policy leapt onto a desk in front of ECB President Mario Draghi yesterday as he spoke at a news conference, disrupting the normally technical presentation.
"End the ECB dictatorship," she shouted, throwing what appeared to be confetti and sheets of paper. Her T-shirt bore a similar message, spelling it "Dick-tatorship". She flashed a V for victory sign and smiled as two men in grey suits took her away holding her arms and legs.
A startled Draghi held up his hands as protection, but was otherwise relatively unruffled. The conference, in Frankfurt, resumed shortly afterwards. It was not immediately clear where the woman was from or what her specific protest was.
