Intimate photos of Carla Bruni stolen

A Paris police official says a computer containing 'highly intimate' photos of French first lady and former model Carla Bruni-Sarkozy have been stolen.

The official says the computer, a camera and video materials were taken on Sunday when the Paris apartment of Julien Enthoven was burgled. Enthoven is the younger brother of Bruni-Sarkozy's former lover, philosophy professor Raphael Enthoven.

Polce fear the photos could now be made public.

Bruni-Sarkozy and Raphael Enthoven had a child, Aurelien, before separating.

The Italian-born singer and former model married French President Nicolas Sarkozy last year, shortly after his divorce from his second wife.
