Security questions at Brussels airport after $50 million diamond heist – Dan Rivers reports

Police this morning are looking for an Audi in the search for the people who stole $50 million in diamonds from the cargo hold at an airport in Brussels, Belgium.

It's a story with "Hollywood Movie" written all over it: Eight diamond thieves, well armed and well organized, crashed through the airport fence, pointed guns at the plane's crew and made off with the jewels. Then, they vanished.

CNN senior international correspondent Dan Rivers reports live from Brussels for "Early Start" this morning, and speaks with Brussels Airport's Jan Van Der Cruysse about security questions in the wake of the theft.
