Jewellery thieves flee with haul

Armed robbers have stolen jewellery and watches worth SFr2 million ($1.69 million) in a raid on a shop in northern Switzerland.

The theft took place on Wednesday in the town of Schaffhausen. The jewellery shop had been burgled six times before, most recently in June 2007.

A shop assistant was threatened with a gun while two of the thieves collected valuables. The trio then fled in a waiting car.

Police said the masked thieves had been "well organised" and worked quickly.
