Two masked thieves have stopped a car carrying two tourists in Paris, sprayed them with tear gas and stolen belongings worth as much as €5m (£4.2 million).
A police official said the two Qatari women were targeted on the A1 highway as they headed to Paris's high-end 16th arrondissement after arriving on Monday night at Le Bourget Airport.
Their driver reported the incident to police.
The official said the women told police the stolen goods included jewellery, luxury fashions and luggage.
A Saudi prince's diplomatic convoy was ambushed in a similar heist in 2014 as it headed to Le Bourget Airport, commonly used for private jets.
