PARIS – Paris police say that armed robbers ambushed and stole a car belonging to a Saudi prince at a highway interchange on the northern edge of the French capital.
A police official said Monday that there were no injuries in the attack Sunday night by multiple assailants. The official was not authorized to be publicly named according to police rules. The official would not name the prince or say whether he was in the car.
French newspaper Le Parisien and Europe-1 radio reported that large sums of cash were also stolen from the car, part of a convoy en route to Paris' Le Bourget airport. The reports said the Saudi passengers were left unharmed on the side of the road. The Saudi Embassy couldn't be reached for comment.
