we actually saw this on the news here - in fact, it may even have made it onto the NTV news programme broadcast by SBS - who IS that woman with the hair that looks like a bike helmet, by the way.... :-)
it's not the girl they drag away on this video. It's a guy who also tried to go over the fence. They girl spent about an hour on the territory of the embassy. The embassy officials didn't let the police arrest her there. She was arrested only after she left through another exit.
