Gunfight as robbers target secure vault in Paraguay

There have been chaotic scenes in the Paraguayan city of Ciudad del Este after 50 armed men blew up the front of a private security firm, and fired on police.

Paraguayan officials are describing it as the 'robbery of the century'.

Unconfirmed reports suggest they could have stolen up to $40m (£31m; €37m).

After the robbery, the gang created a diversion by burning cars and attacking the local police station.
