Jewels worth $1m Stolen Loaned for Cannes film festival

It has been reported that jewels worth more than $1m (£650,000; 777,000 euros) have been stolen from a hotel in Cannes.

The jewels were to be loaned to celebrities who have arrived on the French Riviera for the famous annual film festival.

The jewels were stolen from a safe in the Novotel Hotel room of an employee of exclusive Swiss jewellers Chopard.

The theft happened on the same day that the festival was shown The Bling Ring, a new film by director Sofia Coppola about some high-school students who find out when celebrities are attending red carpet events in order to break into their homes and steal their designer clothes, bags, and shoes.
