Thieves steal paintings in renowned Dutch museum

THE HAGUE--Several paintings of considerable value were stolen from Rotterdam's Kunsthal museum where works by world-renowned 19th and 20th century artists including Picasso and Van Gogh hang, police said Tuesday.

“There was a break-in during the night and a few paintings were taken that represent a considerable sum,” Rotterdam police spokeswoman Patricia Wessels said.

“A major investigation is underway and forensics are at the scene,” she said, adding that “for several reasons we can't say yet which works are concerned or which artists.”
