Air France Jetliner Mugged On Runway

Armed robbers held up an Air France jetliner Tuesday as it taxied down the runway of an airport in southwest France.

Police searched for at least four men after they made off with an unknown amount of money.

The robbers fired at least one bullet at the flight from Paris as it landed in Perpignan.

The gunmen used a van to block the jet, seizing money from the cargo hold, police said.

There were no injuries.
