NEW YORK (Reuters) – Police apprehended a woman on the Statue of Liberty’s stone pedestal on Wednesday after a three-hour standoff that forced the evacuation of thousands of tourists from the New York Harbor landmark on Independence Day.

The National Parks Service could not confirm whether the woman was part of a group of protesters who had earlier unfurled a banner that read “Abolish ICE” from the base of the statue, a symbol of American freedom, according to media reports.
