'Priceless' jewels stolen in Germany's Green Vault museum heist

Thieves break into one of the world's oldest museums, making off with three 'priceless' sets of 18th-century jewellery.

    Thieves have stolen more than $1bn in jewellery from an art gallery in the German city of Dresden.

    The loot included three 18th century sets of jewels including diamonds, rubies and emeralds.

    The thieves pulled off the heist by first cutting off electricity to the gallery.
