BELGIUM DAYLIGHT MAGRITTE ROBBERY !



A 3m-euro (£2.7m) painting by Belgian surrealist artist Rene Magritte has been stolen in broad daylight from a Brussels museum, curators say.
The 1948 nude - entitled Olympia - was stolen by two unidentified people, one of whom was armed, officials told AFP.
It was stolen from a gallery dedicated to Magritte's life and work at his former home, officials said.
Magritte died in 1967 and is recognised as one of the most influential artists of the 20th Century.
