Edvard Munch's "Screem" & "Madonna" are stolen !

Posted by Hello

Two masked robbers ran into the Munch Museum, threatened staff with a gun and forced people to lie down before taking The Scream, an icon of existentialist angst showing a waif-like figure against a blood-red sky, and Madonna. They escaped in a black Audi A6 driven by a third man. The pictures, worth millions of dollars and among Munch's best-known works, were later cut from their frames which were found in another part of the city.
