Thieves have stolen five expensive paintings, including a work by
Picasso, from the National Museum of Modern Art in Paris, France Info radio reported Thursday.
Other works missing include paintings by Henri Matisse, Georges Braque, Fernand Leger and Amedeo Modigliani. The thieves apparently broke into the museum through a window, DPA reported.
Initial reports said that the value of the paintings could be in the hundreds of millions of euros. If confirmed, it would make it one of the biggest art heists in history.
The museum would not confirm the report. The Organized Crime Brigade (BRB) is handling the investigation.
