The historic Chiaramonti Museum in Vatican City was struck by tragedy after two of its precious Ancient Roman busts were deliberately knocked over by a tourist.

The culprit, believed to be an American tourist in his '60s, had visited Rome in hopes to see the Pope but his request was later declined. Records showed that the man is a serial offender as he was previously reprimanded in the US on the grounds of gross indecency. 

The Vatican authorities have since detained the man for further investigation. 

As for the damaged busts, the restoration will reportedly cost the museum a staggering €15,000 and 300-350 hours of work!
