France: Greenpeace nuclear protest

Greenpeace activists have broken into a nuclear power plant in eastern France to highlight what they say are security weaknesses.

They hung a banner reading “Stop risking Europe” on the side of a nuclear reactor in Fessenheim.

The Greenpeace stunt comes ahead of a meeting by EU leaders to discuss energy policy.

France is the world’s most nuclear-dependent country.
