    (ANSAmed) - PARIS, JUNE 21 - Two Femen activists briefly protested topless Friday morning during French President Francois Hollande's visit to the Paris Air Show in Le Bourget before being taken away by security guards. While the head of state was visiting the Air Show stands, the two yelled out the names of the two French nationals of their organisation sentenced to jail time in Tunisia for having protested topless and bared their breasts. One of the two activists had 'Fly away from Islam' written on her back. The protest was quickly cut short by presidential security guards, who handcuffed the women and took them away. Three Femen activists, two French nationals and one German, were sentenced on June 12 in Tunisia to four months in jail for staging a protest. They have been in prison since May 29. Their appeals trial is scheduled to take place on Friday. President Hollande will be making an official visit to Tunisia on July 4-5. (ANSAmed).
