Title[edit]

Wouldn't "2013 Belgian diamond heist" be a better title? Mjroots (talk) 21:41, 20 February 2013 (UTC)

Probably. Feel free to move. Remember (talk) 21:47, 20 February 2013 (UTC)
Agreed. Bobxii (talk) 13:41, 21 February 2013 (UTC)
I'd suggest "Brussels Airport diamond heist", similarly to Antwerp Diamond Heist. kashmiri 00:26, 22 February 2013 (UTC)

Vandalism[edit]

This article is on the English Main Page. It should be semi-protected immediately. Also, totally awesome robbery. Hope for the movie soon. Bobxii (talk) 01:03, 21 February 2013 (UTC)

I'm wondering just how many people think the last half of that sentence should be struck through... MIVP - (Can I Help?) (Maybe a bit of tea for thought?) —Preceding undated comment added 16:20, 22 February 2013 (UTC)
WP:NOTFORUM. Stop posting off-topic comments. - M0rphzone (talk) 05:40, 23 February 2013 (UTC)

Aftermath[edit]

Reaction "He also stated that it was "incredibly idiotic" of the Belgian Prime Minister, Caleb Miller, to let something like this happen. In response, Miller screamed "Vous taisez-vous!", which probably means something in French." Professionalism...? Also not cited. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Userbrendan (talkcontribs) 01:07, 21 February 2013 (UTC)

That was vandalism. The user has been blocked. Bobxii (talk) 13:40, 21 February 2013 (UTC)

Categories[edit]

The Saudi Arabia category seems unfounded. Nothing in the article suggests it belongs there. Removing until someone can provide a reason for it's inclusion. LuthienKess (talk) 01:24, 21 February 2013 (UTC)

Justified removal reverted by Zws23 Hugo999 (talk) 01:32, 21 February 2013 (UTC)

Context of theft[edit]

Why were the diamonds being transported in the first place? 138.16.21.199 (talk) 02:10, 21 February 2013 (UTC)

According to the New York Times source, "Diamonds bought in Antwerp for either cutting or sale abroad are usually taken to Brussels Airport, about 25 miles away," I haven't found anything else that explains the transport, though the tone of the articles suggests to me that it was a regular/scheduled transport. LuthienKess (talk) 16:34, 21 February 2013 (UTC)

Inside job[edit]

"The heist has been described as a professional, inside job,[4]"

From the citation the only relevant quote reads; " “I am certain this was an inside job,” said Doron Levy, an expert in airport security at a French risk management company, Ofek. "

I would suggest changing the wording to reflect that at this time it is only speculation that this was an inside job. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 219.90.232.190 (talk) 03:24, 21 February 2013 (UTC)

Nikunj[edit]

The last paragraph states: "In addition, he stated that Nikunj was stupid.". Who or what is a Nikunj? That name is never mentioned in the article, neither in the linked source. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 195.37.78.21 (talk) 15:25, 21 February 2013 (UTC)

Vandalism again. Removed. GregorB (talk) 15:31, 21 February 2013 (UTC)
