Crown Jewels From Ghana Snatched in Hotel Lobby
Even a king has to keep an eye on his luggage, apparently. King Otumfuo Osei Tutu II of Ghana was visiting Norway this week when some of his family's crown jewels were snatched from a hotel lobby in Oslo, the BBC reports. Police say they have "good" surveillance images of the scene and are trying to identify the suspects. The king's secretary, who first said the jewels had "tremendous value," later dismissed the theft as "not such a big deal"—just a few rings and some lost headgear.
