A dozen pieces of ancient Roman jewelry were stolen from the Louvre Museum, officials said Friday. It was the latest in a series of art thefts that has prompted an overhaul of security in Paris museums.

The second- and third-century earrings, bracelets and necklaces were discovered missing Wednesday, the same day a Renoir was cut from its frame at the Louvre and two other works taken from two small museums.
