Belgium diamond heist investigation

This article indicates that the group that carried out the extremely well-planned $50-million diamond heist at the Brussels airport in February apparently did not give as much thought to how to sell the diamonds. Police arrested 31 suspects in May in France, Switzerland, and Belgium. Also, some estimates put the real value of the stolen gems at $350-400 million, suggesting that the official inventory masked a larger cache from illicit transnational diamond trading.
