French police cars are parked on April 11, 2013 at the 'Cour Carree' of the Louvre Museum in Paris. Paris's Louvre museum today reopened its doors to the public after a walkout by some staff in protest at gangs of pickpockets operating at the world famous art gallery. Around 20 police officers have now been drafted in to patrol the museum in response to staff concerns, Louvre officials told AFP. The day before, the Louvre failed to open when around 200 employees refused to work saying the museum had become plagued by gangs of increasingly aggressive pickpockets, many of whom were children.
