Thieves roll up red carpet

November 8, 2002
ZURICH (Reuters) - Brash thieves have rolled up the red carpet outside a swank Zurich hotel, making off with an expensive 4.3-metre (yard) wool rug in the dead of night even though it was screwed down.

On Friday Zurich police asked anyone stepping across a red carpet with "Welcome to Atlantis Hotel Zurich" in blue letters to call.
