Police in France have arrested a woman at the Louvre-Lens for allegedly defacing one Eugene Delacroix’s most famous works.
The painting called “La Liberte guidant le peuple” was vandalised with the inscription AE911, a reference to a 9/11 conspiracy theory.
The work used to feature on the 100 franc banknote before France switched to the euro.
