Million Euro jewels stolen in armed raid on Ritz Hotel in Paris

During the robbery, the gang of five smashed the window of a jewellery store at the hotel with axes and looted the pieces on display, Xinhua reported.

The three suspects were arrested near the chic Place Vendome in central Paris but none of the jewels or other items has been recovered so far.

Three of the gang were detained while fleeing the scene and an AFP journalist said some roads around the hotel were sealed off by security forces following the incident.

As the robbers opened fire on the hotel, guests at the Hemingway bar were told to "get down", eyewitnesses have said.

"We heard at least 10 rounds of gunfire so everyone dove behind the bar where we stayed there for about six minutes".

Some of the thieves were thought to have been armed with axes.
