A Swedish tourist caused a military alert in an Albanian village when she decided to indulge in a bit of topless sunbathing.

The woman was part of a tourist group that stopped by at the beach. According to Aftonbladet, Albanian women on the beach fled with their children and called the police, shocked by the sight of the scantily clad tourist.

A military patrol was sent to the scene, the paper quoted Italian daily Corriere della Sera as reporting. The soldiers were unable to do anything, however, as they couldn't communicate with the woman.
