It seems that five paintings by Picasso, Matisse and other great artists have been stolen from the Museum of Modern Art in Paris, French officials say.
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.
