French workers hold company heads captive after they’re fired without pay...

Workers at a French greetings card firm on Friday sequestered the head of their company and the chief of the Dutch firm which owns it after sacked employees were told they would not get their dues.

The protest at the office of French firm Edit66 and the Dutch owner Mercurius, targeted their two chiefs Paul Denis and Merthus Bezemer.

The firm, which has been facing financial problems, is based in the southern French city of Cabestany.

It was bought by Mercurius in the early 1990s and once counted 60 workers but recently employed only 37, of whom 19 were laid off.
