Heavily armed gunmen stole thousands of pounds in an attack on a convoy of diplomatic vehicles belonging to a Saudi prince in the north of Paris on Sunday evening, French police have reported.

The motorcade was heading through the French capital on its way to Le Bourget airport on Boulevard Périphérique, the city’s ring road.

The eight attackers, who witnesses said were armed with Kalashnikovs and were in two vehicles, forced the convoy to stop around 9pm near Porte de la Chapelle, one of the main routes in and out of the city.
