Bandits attacked a Samsung Electronics Co Ltd factory near Sao Paulo late Sunday and held workers hostage while they robbed truckloads of smartphones, tablets and notebook computers the company valued at about $6.3 million. The dramatic heist, carried out by armed robbers who carjacked a shuttle used by factory employees, took place overnight during nearly four hours in Campinas, an industrial hub in the southeastern state of Sao Paulo. A spokesman for the states public security secretariat said the bandits made off with seven trucks laden with more than 40,000 Samsung products. Police earlier Monday valued the loot at up to $36 million, but Samsung later said it was much lower.
