$50 Million in Diamonds Stolen from Brussels Airport

In a heist that has left authorities in Brussels stunned, a group of eight men stole $50 million worth of diamonds from a plane in the Brussels Airport on Tuesday. 

"It comes as a big surprise that something like this is possible," said Jan Van der Cruysse, a spokesman for Brussels Airport. "But of course, this is rather connected to banditism and organized crime rather than aviation security."
