PARIS (Reuters) - One of Pablo Picasso’s sketchbooks worth several million euros has been stolen from the Picasso Museum in central Paris, police said on Tuesday.

The theft occurred overnight but there was no sign the museum had been broken into. The sketchbook was valued at 7-10 million euros ($9.7 million-$13.9 million).

The museum was not immediately available for comment.
