Paris (Web Desk) - A French court has charged the alleged mastermind of the Paris heist in which five masked men robbed US reality TV television star Kim Kardashian of jewellery worth millions.
Sixty-year-old Aomar A. was among six suspects charged over the October 3 robbery during which the celebrity was bound and gagged at gunpoint, then locked in a bathroom at the luxury residence where she was staying during Paris Fashion Week.
One of the alleged robbers was named as Didier D., aged 61 and nicknamed "Blue Eyes," the prosecutors said. He was sentenced in 2003 to eight and half years in jail for international cocaine trafficking after being busted with two tonnes of the drug at a Paris airport.
A total of 10 people have now been charged, including five accused of playing a direct role in robbing the 36-year-old Kardashian of jewellery worth some nine million euros ($9.5 million).
