Ukraine Official's Daughter Robbed In Paris
LINDA WERTHEIMER, host:
Our last word in business today is bejeweled and bereft. A prominent Ukrainian woman arrived at the airport in Paris, was driving into the city when her car was stuck in traffic. A thief sized the opportunity to pull open the car door and make off with the ladys handbag. And it was no ordinary haul. The bag belonged to Christina Chernigovskaya(ph); she's a banker, the daughter of the mayor of Kiev, the capital of Ukraine. She told the BBC that her purse contained jewels, rings, and earrings worth more than $6 million. One small consolation: the robber did not get the $11,000 in cash, which was also in the car.
