Sixteen youths held in connection with Paris train robbery

Police in France have arrested 16 youths in connection with a train robbery in Paris.

The gang, most of whom are under 18, are suspected of boarding a train and going through carriages forcing people to hand over their money, mobile phones and even some clothes.

Police said they have recovered many of the stolen items and believe some of those detained were also involved in two similar train robberies earlier this month.
