'Gigantic' diamond heist at Brussels Airport

Armed robbers have made off with a "gigantic" haul of diamonds after a rapid raid at Brussels Airport.

They broke through a fence on Monday evening and stole gems which could be worth 50m euros (£43m; $67m), as they were being loaded from a Brinks security van onto a Swiss-bound plane.

Police later found a burned-out vehicle close to the airport, as Ben Ando reports.
