Gunmen takes 250,000 euros from Saudi prince in Paris
Armed robbers attacked a Saudi Arabian prince's convoy in Paris on Sunday night, police said, taking what the victims told police was around 250,000 euros in cash and some sensitive documents.
The convoy had been heading for Le Bourget airport north of the city. Witnesses told police a group of heavily armed men attacked the last car in the convoy near Porte de la Chapelle at around 9 p.m. and drove off in it.
No shots were fired and nobody was hurt, a police source said, adding that the robbers were still at large and an investigation was under way.
Rocco Contento, a representative of police union SGP, told BFMTV the attackers appeared to be "people who knew the itinerary" of the cars.
