Air France execs' clothes torn off by protesters after layoff announcement

Protesters angry over proposed layoffs stormed an Air France executive meeting and cornered Director Pierre Plissonnier and Resources Director Xavier Broseta, tearing off the men's jackets and ripping their shirts off, forcing them to scale a fence to get free.

Air France/KLM failed to get their pilots agree to longer hours, so they announced 2,900 layoffs.
