An armed gang has stolen four paintings worth some $160m (£82m) by the great painters Cezanne, Degas, Van Gogh and Monet from a museum in Zurich.
Swiss police said the robbery happened at the Emil Buehrle Collection on Sunday. The three thieves are at large.
The gang threatened a security guard before seizing the works. The art theft is one of the biggest in the world in the last 20 years.

The house looks all boarded up, and there are no autos in the lot. Must have been a *very* private collection.
