French authorities have recovered all the jewels stolen from the Ritz Hotel in Paris during a dramatic heist, but are still searching for two thieves who got away.

The incident took place at about 6:30 pm (1730 GMT) as the streets of Paris were busy with people making their way home from work.
Axe-wielding raiders entered the hotel through an unmarked side door, smashed display cases and threw bags of goods out of a window to at least two accomplices outside, say police.
