Police check German art student Pablo Wendel after he was caught in the exhibition hall of the Terracotta Warriors in Xi'an, Northwest China's Shaanxi province September 16, 2006. Wendel was briefly detained by police after climbing into the pit and attempting to blend in with the ancient warriors of the terracotta army. Thousands of terracotta soldiers that were buried in the tomb of the Emperor Qinshihuang, who ruled China between 221-210 BC, are displayed in the pit where they were discovered in 1976. [AP Photo]
