Kim Kardashian Robbed at Gun Point of $10 Million in Jewelry in Paris, France by Men Dressed as Police Officers
Kim Kardashian has been reportedly robbed at gunpoint in Paris, France by 5 men dressed in ski masks and police jackets. The reality TV star, famous for pretty much nothing, was robbed while at a hotel in Paris. According to reports she was robbed if 10 million in jewelry after being tied up. She was unharmed in the incident.
Kim Kardashian West has left Paris on a private jet after being tied up and robbed of $10 million in jewelry by armed masked men dressed as police.
Five men in ski masks and police jackets were involved in the robbery about 3 a.m. local time Monday, Reuters reports.
Two men entered her room at No Address Hotel, bound Kardashian’s hands and feet with tape then locked her in the bathroom before stealing a jewelry box worth $6.7 million in jewelry and a ring worth $4 million, police sources told La Parisien.
As would be expected news that Kim Kardashian had been robbed of €10 million worth of jewellery during an armed robbery in Paris made headlines around the world on Monday.
Even if many on social media displayed little sympathy for the mega-rich reality TV star who had a €4 million ring and a €6 million jewellery box stolen, it’s clear she endured a horrifying ordeal.
If reports are correct she was woken up when robbers forced themselves into her room at a residence near the Madeleine church, had a gun held to her head and was tied up and locked in the bathroom until help eventually came.
The robbery could also prove to be a different kind of ordeal for Paris authorities with some politicians quickly jumping on the crime to highlight the “urgent” issue of safety in Paris.
It comes after numerous other high profile robberies that have targeted members of the Saudi royal family and visitors from China.
84 Year Old Priest Father Jacques Hamel Beheaded by Islamic Terrorist in France … ISIS Claims Responsibility
THE RADICAL ISLAMIC TERROR CONTINUES …
An 84-year-old priest was killed and four other people taken hostage by two armed radical Islamist terrorists at a church in a suburb of Rouen in northern France. The radical Islamist savages slit the throat of an 84 year old Father Jacques Hamel and beheaded him.
French President Francois Hollande stated in a press conference that ISIS has declared war on France.
The two attackers, who said they were from the so-called Islamic State (IS), slit Fr Jacques Hamel’s throat during a morning Mass, officials say.
Police surrounded the church and shot dead both hostage-takers. French media named one of them as Adel K.
One of the hostages is in a critical condition in hospital.
President Francois Hollande, visiting the scene, in Saint Etienne-du-Rouvray, said the attackers had committed a “cowardly assassination” and France would fight IS “by all means”.
Pope Francis decried the “pain and horror of this absurd violence”.
UK Prime Minister Theresa May branded the attack “sickening” and offered her condolences to the people of France.
The suspect named as Adel K, aged 18, is reported to have been in custody and then placed under a control order, and had tried to enter Syria twice.
UPDATE I: French church attack: What we know.
Adel Kermiche, 19, was wearing an “electronic tag” during the deadly hostage incident at a Catholic church in the town of Saint-Etienne-du-Rouvray, prosecutor Francois Molins said.
The monitoring apparatus was a condition of his house arrest after two attempts in 2015 to travel abroad — at least once to Syria — using a relative’s identification, Molins said.
Kermiche was identified via fingerprints after the attack, which French President Francois Hollande said was committed in the name of ISIS.
The second killed attacker has not been identified.
MORE THAN 80 DEAD IN TERROR ATTACK IN NICE, FRANCE …
UNREAL … It has happened again in France … Radical Islamic terrorism. A truck plowed into pedestrians during Bastille Day celebrations in Nice, France Thursday leaving at least 80 people dead.

A truck plowed into pedestrians during Bastille Day celebrations in the popular French seaside city of Nice Thursday, leaving at least 80 people dead in what the nation’s president called “obviously a terrorist attack.”
The deadly toll, which included several children, came after the truck slammed into revelers gathered on a promenade to watch fireworks, French President Francois Hollande said in an address Friday morning.
“Such a monstrosity,” Hollande said. He pledged to step up efforts to fight terror in Iraq and Syria, and said he will seek to extend a state of emergency by three months.
“France is deeply saddened, but it is also very strong,” Hollande said. “I can assure you we will always be stronger than the fanatics who are trying to attack us.”
The driver was fatally shot by police, Hollande said. It is unknown if there were accomplices, Hollande said. French media, citing a police source, reported that ID papers belonging to a French-Tunisian were found in the truck. A source told NBC News the driver is believed to have been a French national of Tunisian descent.
