BISCAROSSE, France, Sept 23, 2006 (AFP) - More than 1,000 French anti-nuclear protestors demonstrated at a military centre in western France on Saturday at their country's plans to test a new M51 ballistic missile.

39 activists from England, Scotland, Belgium, France, the Netherlands and Germany, managed to gain access to the base in order to carry out an inspection of the base.
