Uncovered in Mainstream media - $100,000,000 worth of diamonds stolen in the weekend in Amsterdam, Holland. Brinks armored truck was stolen and possibly Malka Amit armored truck as well.
This is reported on (in hebrew only currently). I personnally verified the news with aquaintences in the diamond industry.

Police suspect diamond robbers 'had inside help'

AMSTERDAM — Police suspect robbers who hijacked a truck carrying EUR 75 million in jewels from Schiphol Airport in Amsterdam last week must have had help from the inside. It was one of the largest diamond heists ever.

so, from 75-100.000.000 euro in jewels has been stolen,
with inside help?
really nice.

I wonder which Insurance company will have to cough up the sum to cover this?

Trazzel! , i think you will find it all over hebrew media since it was meant to go to antwerp...

There must been A LOT of inside help, they found some stolen car i a nearby village , but the car had not officially past the airport gates on the way out, SO the car itselve must have been smuggled inside another truck.

My guess it are the Albanian maffia, who very much make there presence felt in Belgium and are specialised in robbing money trucks with rocket launchers and AK47's

I would look at any new import / export firm that has established itselve the last year WITHIN the gates of the airport, the robbers must have had a lot of help from people with several area clearances...

Since they lost quite a few shipments on Belgium airports already , they decided to use amsterdam instead, but to no avail...

At least nobody got killed

Schiphol Airport received more negative news lately as it seemed that Dutch mobsters had bought a COMPLETE AIRLINE to smuggle coc aine from ther Netherlands Antilles to Holland and beyond....they had this operation running for several years...Also lugagehandlers and customs was on their paylist...

I don't know who did it BUT. . .diamonds are very easy to deal. No serial numbers, very hard to identify and very easy to sell. Hell they can cut the price by 75% and still make enough.
