Rome: Italian police said on Monday that eight people had been arrested across Europe in connection with a dramatic robbery attempt of a jewellery store in Saint Mark’s Square in Venice in 2017.

The eight suspects, arrested in Austria, Estonia and Finland, belonged to an Estonian gang specialised in heists of luxury European jewellery stores, the Carabinieri police said. In March 2017, members of a gang of robbers set off smoke bombs in St Mark’s Square as a distraction before targeting a jewellery store.
