TORONTO (Reuters) - An Air France-KLM Boeing 747 aircraft skidded off the runway at Montreal's Trudeau airport on Tuesday but there were no injuries or serious damage, Canada's Global Television network reported.

The network said the plane overshot the runway and became stuck in the grass after landing on a flight from Paris.

Passengers were taken off by emergency crews.

Planes continued to land and take off at the airport, the network said.
