It sounds like something out of a movie -- a gang of armed men pulled off a daring heist at Brussels International Airport, making off with $50 million in diamonds.

Police are looking for eight men who made a hole in a security fence at the airport, drove onto the tarmac, and robbed a Switzerland-bound plane at gunpoint.

Authorities are now searching for clues. They did find a burned vehicle close to the airport which they believe was one of the getaway cars.

The incident comes just days after a brazen diamond theft at a luxury hotel in New York City.
