A Banksy piece of work has been stolen from the Bataclan Theatre in Paris.
The work, which appeared in memory of the 90 people killed during the 2015 terror attack, depicted a figure in white with its head bent in mourning.
The Banksy work appeared in Paris in June last year, one of a string of pieces of work to address the refugee crisis in the city.
A source close to the investigation told LCI television that “a group of hooded individuals armed with angle grinders cut the painting and took it away in a truck.”
“We are today filled with a deep sense of indignation,” reads a Twitter post from the Bataclan. “The work of Banksy, a symbol of contemplation belonging to all – residents, Parisians and citizens of the world – has been taken from us.”
