Robbers tunnel into Parisian vault to crack safes
Robbers tunnelled into the vault of a Parisian bank near the gilded Opéra Garnier at the weekend and cracked almost 200 private safes.
The gangsters tied up security guards at a Crédit Lyonnais branch on the Avenue de l'Opéra on Saturday night, before digging through a series of cellars to reach the vault, police said.
They spent several hours opening the safes, then set the building on fire.
The value of the stolen goods has not been revealed.
