The World

The daughter of Bernard Tricot, the ex-French official who investigated the bombing of the Greenpeace protest ship Rainbow Warrior in New Zealand, killed herself because of the affair, Paris newspapers said. According to the reports, Marie-Claude Tricot, 40, who had a history of mental problems, threw herself out of her fourth-floor Paris apartment Sept. 6, leaving a note to her family saying she was “badly affected” by the bombing scandal. Her father’s Aug. 26 report absolved the French secret service of blame, but the government has since admitted that French agents carried out the bombing.
