FRENCH POLICE HAVE arrested 16 people in the Paris region this morning over the robbery of US reality TV star Kim Kardashian in Paris last year, police sources said.
Kardashian was tied up and robbed of jewellery worth around €9 million when a gang of masked men burst into the luxury Paris residence where she was staying during Fashion Week in October.
Police said a gang of five armed men burst into the residence in the early hours of 3 October, tied up Kardashian and stole a ring and jewellery worth around €9 million.
They are believed to have fled the scene by bicycle. Although “badly shaken”, Kardashian was otherwise unharmed.
Kardashian, 35, who had been attending Paris fashion week, was briefly questioned by police before flying back to New York.
