ANNECY, France, Nov 26 (AFP) - Thieves have made off with artwork and precious items of unspecified value after breaking into a luxurious residence in the French Alps belonging to the Saudi royal family, French police said Wednesday.

The robbers forced open doors to two of the four chalets on the property in the ski resort of Megeve to get at the loot, officers said.

The residence is owned by Prince Sultan bin Abdul Aziz, Saudi Arabia’s second deputy prime minister and defence minister who is a brother of King Fahd.
