Multi-million jewel heist in Cannes

An armed man has stolen jewels worth 40 million euro (£34m, US$53m) from an exhibition at the Carlton Hotel in the French Riviera resort of Cannes.

Officials say the hold-up took place on Sunday morning, in the hotel where Alfred Hitchcock's 1955 film "To Catch A Thief" was shot.
