Sixteen people have been arrested in connection with the robbery of Kim Kardashian in Paris, AFP have reported, citing police sources.

The reality TV star lost ten million dollars worth of jewellery in the October heist, and has since largely stayed out of the public spotlight.

The incident, during which Ms Kardashian, 36, was bound, gagged and held at gunpoint, reportedly left her “badly shaken”.

Her mouth was covered with tape and she was placed in a bath tub.
