French nuclear testing 'probably is' linked to cancer
France's nuclear testing in Algeria and French Polynesia from the 1960s to 1990s 'probably is' linked to cancer developed by people living and working nearby. That's according to a report by doctors, commissioned by the French law courts. Alleged victims of the radioactive experiments are now calling on the government to recognise the state's liability abd widen access to its compensation fund.
