Luxury watch shop hold-up in Cannes days after hotel heist

Two armed men held up a store selling luxury watches in the French Riviera town of Cannes Wednesday, three days after a huge jewellery heist took place at a nearby hotel, a source close to the investigation said.

The value of the theft at the Kronometry store, which is not far from the Carlton hotel where a record $136-million (103-million-euro) robbery took place Sunday, is not yet known, the source told AFP.
