A group of eight heavily-armed robbers disguised as Brazilian federal police officers made off with almost 750 kg of gold from a cargo terminal at Sao Paulo's Guarulhos International Airport, one of the busiest in Latin America, officials said.

Authorities at Sao Paulo's Guarulhos global airport say eight armed men have raided a terminal and escaped with some 750 kilos (750,000 grams) of precious metals. Security footage then shows the workers loading cargo into the vehicle.

A gang of thieves wearing police uniforms made away with more than 700 kilograms of gold valued at around 32.2 million dollars at Brazil's Sao Paulo airport, reported dpa news.

The speculates masked their pickup truck as a Brazilian government police vehicle and went up against workers, compelling them to move the gold into their vehicle. One was the airport's logistics supervisor, according to Agencia Brasil, which said the hostages were released unharmed. She said no one was hurt during the robbery.
