Striking Air France employees scuffle with police inside terminal during protest over job cuts


PARIS - Several hundred striking Air France workers have clashed with police during a demonstration inside Paris' Roissy-Charles de Gaulle airport.

The protesters and police scuffled in one of the airport's departure halls Saturday, knocking over planters and surprising travellers waiting for flights. The terminal was crowded because it is the start of a nationwide two-week school vacation in France.

No injuries were reported.

The demonstrators are protesting a restructuring plan decided by Air France management that aims to cut 10 per cent of the airline's workforce.

The strike, which is scheduled to last through the weekend, slightly delayed some flights Friday, but traffic was back to normal Saturday, with no flights cancelled.
