From the Paris modern art museum were stolen five masterpieces

The paintings are estimated to be worth around £ 400 million and were stolen on Wednesday night.

Moreover, during the investigation, the security camera footage reportedly shows someone entering the museum through a window during the night.

“This is a serious crime to the heritage of humanity,” Christophe Girard, deputy culture secretary at the Paris Town Hall, told a news conference.

The theft was committed by “one or more individuals who were obviously organized “, Mr. Girard said.
