An armed gang dressed as police officers are thought to be behind a diamond heist at Brussels Airport. The masked men stole a cache of stones and sped off into the darkness on Monday night, said Anja Bijnens, spokeswoman for the Brussels prosecutors' office.
It is understood the robbers targeted a security van parked near a Swiss plane. Police later found a burnt-out vehicle close to the airport. There have been conflicting reports about the value of the stolen gems, ranging from £32.3m to £300m.
An airport spokesman said the robbers made a hole in the fence and drove up to the passenger plane, which was ready to leave.
The thieves got out of the car, flashed their weapons and took the loot from the hold, said airport spokesman Jan Van Der Crujsse. Without firing a shot they drove off through the same hole in the fence, completing the theft within minutes, he added.
