Chinese officials caught an unidentified woman with a knife in front of the Marriott Hotel where U.S. President George W. Bush and Chinese President Hu Jintao were meeting yesterday night.

When the woman entered a restricted zone near the hotel without proper identification, Chinese officials stopped the woman, which she then pulled out a knife hidden in her book.

After officials removed the woman from the entrance of the hotel, Peruvian police were struggling to detain the woman into the police car.

The incident happened just moments after President Jintao and President Bush ended their meeting at the Marriott Hotel in Miraflores where they are in town for the Asian-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) summit.
