Parisian Jewels Stolen in Heist
Four armed robbers, two disguised as women, stole diamonds and other valuables listed between 102 million and 108 million from a Parisian jewelry store Thursday according to the Associated Press and Al Jazeera.net.
The robbers who brandished guns knew the names of some of the employees, were familiar with the hidden storage, and were described as â€œmajor prosâ€? according to police as reported in Al Jazeera.net.
Some of the employees were struck by the robbers but no shots were fired, according to Al Jazeera.net and the Associated Press.
â€œThe brazen theft was among the worldâ€™s costliest jewel heists,â€? according to the Associated Press.
