BERLIN (AP) - German police say they still have no clear leads as they hunt for four bandits who stormed a poker tournament in Berlin and made off with part of the jackpot money in a brazen daylight heist.

Spokesman Burkhard Opitz said Monday police are still analyzing
clues and talking to people who witnessed the Saturday caper in the
capital's Potsdamer Platz.

The masked men armed with guns and machetes rushed into the
poker tournament at the Berlin Grand Hyatt hotel in a midday attack
that stunned participants and the audience. Police say they made
off with a "low six-digit figure" of the euro1 million ($1.36
million) jackpot.

The entire incident was caught on film and experts say the
robbers should not be hard to catch.
