In Paris a French court charged an eleventh suspect Friday over the gunpoint robbery of US reality TV star Kim Kardashian in Paris in 2016.
The 28-year-old man has been charged with armed robbery, criminal conspiracy and holding Kardashian against her will and at gunpoint.
Ten people had already been charged over the October 2, 2016 robbery at a luxury residence where Kardashian was staying during Paris Fashion Week.
Five men tied her up, gagged her and locked her in a bathroom, before making off with jewels worth nine million euros ($10.6 million), including her four-million-euro diamond engagement ring.
The robbery was the biggest of an individual in France in the past 20 years.
One of the robbers fleeing the scene on a bicycle dropped a diamond-encrusted cross worth 30,000 euros, which was found by a passer-by a few hours later.
It remains the only piece to be recovered from the heist. The police believe part of the loot was sold in Belgium.
