Impressionist Art Armed Heist

The BBC reports that an armed gang has stolen paintings by the art Impressionists Cezanne, Degas, Van Gogh and Monet from an art museum in Zurich, Swiss. They say the robbery took place on Sunday and that the art masterpieces are valued at more than $91m (£47m). Police have not yet named the museum. It comes just days after two paintings by Picasso were stolen from a Swiss art exhibition near Zurich. Picasso's oil paintings - Head of Horse and Glass and Pitcher - were taken from the art exhibition in the town of Pfaeffikon last Wednesday. (For full source and full article click the Headline).
