A woman brought a European Central Bank (ECB) news conference to a halt on Wednesday morning when she jumped onto the podium and showered the head of the central bank with confetti.

ECB President Mario Draghi was holding a press conference in Frankfurt, Germany, after the bank's latest policy meeting when the woman launched her protest. The woman, who has not been identified, was wearing a T-shirt that read, "End the ECB dick-tatorship!"

Draghi left the stage as security officials removed the woman and continued his speech after she left, The Guardian reports.
