More than 30 arrests have been made in the diamond heist last February at Brussels Airport and some of the stolen diamonds have been recovered. 24 people were arrested in Belgium, eight in Switzerland, and one in France. Police in Belgium raided about 40 houses in Brussels.
In February the armed robbers stole diamonds worth $467 million while the gems were being loaded onto a plane at Brussels Airport. Two vehicles carrying four armed men drove up to a Brink’s security van near the Swiss passenger plane, officials said. The robbers managed to get onto the tarmac after breaking through the fence that surrounds the airport. The men were armed and masked. There were no shots fired and nobody was injured. Both vehicles sped off after the robbery and one of them was later found.
