Two men on Thursday targeted the jewellery store belonging to Diamonds International, getting away with jewellery worth tens of thousands after storming into the shop armed with batons, a shotgun and an axe. The two were wearing masks and wigs and got away in a white car, before abandoning it in Gzira and continue their escape on a quad bike.

A security was injured after one of the robbers hit him in the head with the butt of the shotgun, which was used to fire a shot in the air.
