A visibly annoyed Pope Francis slapped away a woman’s hand and pulled himself away from her while greeting a crowd in St. Peter’s Square Tuesday night.

The pope was walking toward the Nativity scene in the center of the crowded square when the incident occurred.

He turned away to walk in the other direction after reaching out to touch a child. A woman grabbed his hand and yanked him toward her, according to a video of the incident.
