First Published Jan 07 2014 11:17 am • Last Updated Jan 07 2014 11:17 am

LIBERTE: Two Goodyear managers held captive by angry French workers were freed after police intervened, ending a two-day standoff over the factory, which the tiremaker has tried to sell or shutter for more than five years.

EGALITE: The release outraged union members, who made a bonfire of tires in front of the plant in northern France and who have vowed to occupy the site until managers negotiate with them over severance pay.
