Santa Claus robs a bank in Nashville

INTERNATIONAL PRESS REVIEW: Papers around the world this morning carry photos of a bank robber in Tennessee who dressed up as Santa Claus.

He needed the money to pay his elves, claimed a bank robber in Nashville, Tennessee on Tuesday morning. These photos in the Daily Mail say it all! Apparently the festively-dressed bank robber unnerved those in the bank with his jovial manner. The paper hastens to add that he made his escape in a grey car, not a sleigh with reindeers!
