PARIS, Aug 7 (AFP) - Three thieves disguised as police officers held up a truck and stole laptop computers worth EUR 1 million (USD 1.2 million) from Charles de Gaulle airport north of Paris, an airport source said on Saturday.  

Two of the robbers handcuffed and blindfolded the truck driver and bundled him into the boot of their car on Thursday while the third drove off with the truck, the source said.  

The driver was later found in a forest about 100 kilometres (60 miles) away where his abductors had released him after stealing his identity papers.
