French daily Le Parisien called yesterday's violence against two Air France executives "unjustifiable" on its Tuesday front page.
On Monday, angry workers and union members stormed Air France's headquarters at Charles de Gaulle airport, north of Paris, to protest some 2,900 proposed layoffs.
Pierre Plissonnier, the director of the Air France hub, and the company's head of human resources Xavier Broseta (pictured) had their clothes ripped off of their backs by the furious mob. The latter was forced to climb a fence to escape.
French President François Hollande called the violence "inexcusable," warning of their "consequences on France's image."
