An armed thief has walked away with diamonds valued at €15 million after threatening two sales assistants at the Harry Winston jewellers on the Croisette at Cannes.

Police are studying video surveillance of the robbery, which took place during daylight hours on Wednesday, January 18. The miscreant was wearing glasses but made no other attempt at disguise, judicial sources said.

In addition to a 7.65mm automatic pistol, the robber produced a hand grenade and made the two female sales assistants open the window display. He left the premises on foot and no one was injured during the robbery, which lasted about eight minutes.
