A swanky 200 metre squared apartment in Paris belonging to the Bin Laden family was the scene of a botched robbery on Friday, reported RTL radio.
The suspects managed to climb through the roof and into the fourth floor apartment on Avenue Montaigne in the 8th arrondissment, but things then went sour from the would-be robbers, it seems.
Not only was the vault inside the home empty, but so was the entire apartment, the channel reported.
Police have launched an investigation.
Paris has played host to several high profile robberies of late.
US reality TV star Kim Kardashian was tied up and robbed of jewellery worth around €9 million ($9.5 million) in October.
A month later, two Qatari women were held up on a motorway outside Paris and robbed of valuables worth more than five million euros.
