Art thieves stole paintings by Pablo Picasso, Henri Matisse, Amedeo Modigliani and two other well-known artists from a Paris museum overnight in a heist worth 100 million euros ($124 million). Officials from the Musee d’Art Moderne de la ville de Paris said they discovered the five paintings, which included works by Fernand Leger and Georges Braque, were missing after noticing a smashed window pane as they opened for business on Thursday. “This is a serious crime against the heritage of humanity,” said Christophe Girard, culture deputy for the mayor of Paris. He did not know how many thieves were involved. – From Reuters
