Two Qatari women robbed of US$5.3 mil­lion

The Myanmar Times - - World -

Two Qatari women were held up with their driver on a Paris mo­tor­way and robbed of valu­ables worth “at least 5 mil­lion eu­ros [US$5.3 mil­lion]”, po­lice sources said. The women, who are in their 60s, had just left Le Bour­get air­port north­east of the cap­i­tal on Novem­ber 21 when their Bent­ley was held up by two masked men, who sprayed them with tear gas and stole “ev­ery­thing in the ve­hi­cle: jew­els, clothes, lug­gage”. The por­tion of mo­tor­way lead­ing north from Paris to the Charles de Gaulle and Le Bour­get air­ports is of­ten the scene of hold-ups tar­get­ing wealthy for­eign­ers in lux­ury cars, some of whom carry large amounts of cash.
