Brazen heist

The week's news at a glance.

Paris

Someone stole two huge diamonds in broad daylight this week at a jewelry trade show on the Louvre grounds. Employees manning one of the display cases at the Antique Dealers Biennale left their post for about 15 minutes, and when they returned, a 47-carat and 30-carat diamond were missing. Together, the gems are worth around $14 million. Louvre security officials, who guard the priceless artworks in the museum, were quick to point out that they were not responsible for security at the show.
