Qatari women in Paris victim of a motorway hold-up



High-profile robberies are more and more frequent in Paris . Among the victims : American reality TV star ,Kim Kardashian ,Bollywood actress , Mallika Sherawat ,chief executive of a French furniture chain a , Korean art collector .And now two Qatari women in their 60 s  riding their Bentley with their private chauffeur .


The criminals used tear gas to force the women and the driver to leave the car . Also they were attacked on the motorway near Le Bourget airport where private planes usually land .It seems  that it was very well organized robbery  .

Moral of this story ?  Better  not to show off when in Paris .  Just leave your Bentley  and jewelry at home  .
