Brussels Airport Diamonds Heist

The Guardian has a report on a very smoothly executed robbery at the Brussels airport where thieves dressed as police stole $50 million worth of diamonds.
The men flashed machine guns but no shots were fired as they took 120 parcels from the plane's hold, stacking them in their vehicles. They fled at high speed through the hole in the security fence. The van believed to have been used in the raid was later found burnt out just outside Brussels.
Ine Van Wymersch, spokeswoman for the Brussels prosecutor, said: "They were well prepared. There were passengers on the plane but they saw nothing of what was going on."
