A female protester has interrupted the European Central Bank’s press conference, screaming “End ECB dictatorship” while she rushed the stage and threw what looked like confetti.

The action happened as ECB president Mario Draghi was delivering opening remarks after the bank’s latest policy meeting.

Mr Draghi reappeared on stage a few minutes later and carried on with his remarks.

Some activists accuse the ECB of trying to enforce budget austerity measures on eurozone countries, such as Greece, that are under financial bailout programmes.
