Vatican police arrest man under Bernini's baldacchino.
A man was arrested by Vatican gendarmes for throwing a candelabra off the main altar in St Peter's Basilica on the morning of 4 September.
The man climbed onto the altar under Bernini's bronze baldacchino before throwing a candelabra onto the floor, reports Italian news agency ANSA.
The man is currently being questioned by police who say they stopped the same individual from entering the basilica in recent days after he displayed signs of being "unbalanced", according to ANSA.
