TORONTO (Reuters) - An Air France-KLM Boeing 747 aircraft on a flight from Paris skidded off the runway after landing at Montreal's Trudeau airport on Tuesday but there were no injuries or serious damage, police said.

Passengers were taken off the plane by emergency crews after it overshot the runway and became stuck in the grass.

Operations at the airport were not seriously affected and planes continued to land and take off.
