>> Up to 16 people have been arrested in France in connection with the robbery of reality TV star Kim Kardashian at her Paris apartment last October. According to reports, several others are being held at police headquarters for questioning. At the time of the robbery, on October 3rd, French police said 36-year-old Kardashian was tied up and robbed of around $9.5 million worth of jewellery.
Reports by Europe 1, RTL Radio, and BFMTV say that the arrests were made thanks in part to DNA traces left behind. One of those arrested was picked up in grass close to Cannes, in the southeast of France. The Paris prosecutor could not immediately be reached for comment. Kardashian, who is married to rapper Kanye West, was said to be shaken by the attack, and spent several months out of the public eye.
