Bari police hunt robbers after armed heist gone awry (ANSA) - Bari, February 11 - Police on Tuesday were hunting members of a gang responsible for carrying out an armed heist gone awry on a security firm in the southern city of Bari.

The thieves broke into Secur Service in the San Pio neighbourhood on Monday night and made off with the safe after organising road blocks and strewing nails in the surrounding area to hamper police pursuit. They subsequently abandoned the booty together with their getaway van after a police chase and exchange of fire.

No-one was reported hurt in the shootout. It is not known how much the safe contained.
