A number of Marilyn Monroe's belongings have been stolen in the Czech Republic.

A truck carrying items from an Italian exhibition on the life of the tragic actress was raided by thieves, who made off with photographs of the Some Like It Hot star, as well as some of her outfits, which were due to go on display at Prague Castle to commemorate the 50th anniversary of Monroe's death.

A police investigation has been launched into the incident, though curator Jan Trestik reveals most of the pieces arrived safely before the co-ordinated attack, according to Reuters.
