Brussels diamond robbery nets 'gigantic' haul
Armed robbers have made off with a "gigantic" haul of diamonds after a rapid raid at Brussels Airport.
Disguised as police, they broke through a fence on Monday evening and broke into the cargo of a Swiss-bound plane to take the gems, estimated to be worth $50m (£32m; 37m euros).
They escaped back through the same hole. Police later found a burned-out vehicle close to the airport.
Police are looking for eight men, a prosecutors' spokeswoman said.
