Scream stolen from Norway museum

"Armed robbers have stolen the iconic Edvard Munch painting, The Scream, from the Munch Museum in Norway.
Two masked thieves pulled the work and another painting, Madonna, off the wall as stunned visitors watched on Sunday.
One robber threatened staff with a gun before the pair escaped in a waiting car, a museum officer told the BBC.
The car was later recovered and police also found parts of picture frames near to where a witness reported seeing a suspect vehicle.
The Munch Museum said the two stolen paintings were among its most valuable - worth an estimated $19m (£10.4m) together, according to the BBC's Lars Bevanger."
