Degas Painting Nicked
Edgar Degas' Les Choristes (The Chorus) has been stolen from an exhibition of his work at the Catini Museum in Marseilles. The painting, worth about £710,000, was on loan from the Musee D'Orsay in Paris. The police found no sign of a break-in, so they're investigating the possibility of an inside job. Some lucky lad will get to sit through hours of CCTV footage from security cameras.
