US nuclear reprocessing shipment heads through France by road

A lorry carrying a shipment of plutonium from US weapons arsenals was being escorted through France en route for a reprocessing plant in the southwestern town of Cadarache. A convoy of police and army vehicles and motorcycle outriders was accompanying the vehicle, which left the nuclear treatment centre at La Hague shortly before dawn. Late morning it was travelling by motorway between the cities of Nantes and Bordeaux.
