Armed robbers raid Ritz hotel in Paris stealing jewellery worth 'millions'

Armed robbers stole $5.62 million worth of jewels from the Ritz Paris on Wednesday, leading police on a manhunt for two suspects. Two people were still being sought by authorities on Thursday evening.

One hotel employee told the AFP news agency: "We heard a loud noise and lots of racket in the street". "Passers-by took refuge in the hotel".

Some roads have been sealed off by security forces following the incident in the French capital.

Wolf will serve as the team's assistant general manager, while Highsmith has been named the vice president of player personnel. The Packers also ranked second in the National Football League with an average of 25.3 points per game from 1999-17.


Police would not confirm reports that the jewels were stolen from a hotel shop or that the robbers were armed with hatchets.

Interior Minister Gérard Collomb also offered praise, saying they were "a credit to our police".

Place Vendome, with its opulent window displays of jewellers and high-end watchmakers, has been the scene of several audacious daytime raids.
