Thieves who stole jewellery worth $1.2 million from a hotel in Cannes broke into the room of a Swiss jeweller Chopard employee, according to AFP.
The robbers reportedly opened a safe in the room and made off with the jewels, which were set to be loaned to celebrities who are in the French town for the annual film festival.
Swiss luxury watchmaker and jeweller Chopard is one of the official sponsors of the festival and they redesigned the Palme d'Or award, which is given to the director of the best feature film.
