Mulhouse (France) (AFP) – Several dozen Greenpeace activists snuck into a nuclear power plant in eastern France on Tuesday, in the latest break-in by the environmental group aimed at highlighting alleged security weaknesses at atomic facilities.

The activists broke into the Fessenheim plant and hung a banner reading “Stop risking Europe” on the side of one of its reactors “to denounce the risk of French nuclear power for the whole of Europe,” the group said in a statement.
