Over 15 suspects arrested over Kim Kardashian’s robbery in Paris
BBC – Sixteen people have been arrested in connection with an armed robbery of Kim Kardashian West in Paris in October, officials say.
Authorities said at the time that the American reality TV star was robbed at gunpoint by at least two men dressed as police officers.
The men entered Kardashian West’s luxury apartment before tying her up and locking her in the bathroom.
They escaped with an estimated €10m (£8.7m; $10.5m) in jewelry.
French police said that traces of DNA left at the scene led to the arrests. The men were detained in early morning raids in the Paris region.
The 36-year-old mother-of-two, who is married to the rapper Kanye West, said she feared she was going to be killed at the time. The star was left badly shaken but unhurt.
