Woman arrested after throwing teacup at Mona Lisa

It's emerged that a woman has been arrested after throwing a teacup at the Mona Lisa.

The Russian hurled the cup at the world-famous portrait at the Louvre museum in Paris earlier this month.

However, Leonardo da Vinci's masterpiece is surrounded by bullet-proof glass and so wasn't damaged.

It is thought that the woman may have psychiatric problems.
