France Launches Investigation of Nuclear Plant Break-In

France has said it will look into how dozens of Greenpeace protesters infiltrated one of its atomic energy sites on Monday, Reuters reported.

French Interior Minister Manuel Valls called for authorities to examine factors behind the break-in, described by one organizer as an effort to shed light on the Tricastin plant's defensive shortcomings. Most of the intruders were in custody as of Monday morning.


The French nuclear safety organization ASN said the intrusion had "so far" not had "any impact on the facility's safety."
