56th anniversary of 1st French nuclear bomb “test” in Sahara Desert

(13 February 1960, explodes bomb at Regganne, west Algeria)
In flagrant disregard for the lives of African peoples and their environment, and those of future generations, France carries out an atomic bomb “test” over the Sahara Desert, the first in the year (later blasts would be be carried out in April and December) – exploded bomb has plutonium with yield of 70 kilotons, equivalent to about four times the power of the atomic bomb the United States air force dropped on Hiroshima, Japan, 6 August 1945
