Albanian Military Sent in to Airport After Cash Heist

The Albanian Defense Ministry on Wednesday sent in the military to secure the country’s only international airport after heavily armed men stole a large sum of cash as it was loaded onto a passenger plane. The robbers took the cash as it was loaded onto an Austrian Airlines plane on Tuesday afternoon. One robber was shot dead in an exchange of fire with police, but the cash was not recovered. Authorities have not confirmed how much money was taken but Albanian media reports put it at as much as 10 million euros ($11.3 million).
