WORLD : Greenpeace Replaces Sunken Ship

<i> From Times wire services </i>

Greenpeace launched a new Rainbow Warrior today, four years after the international environmental group’s flagship of the same name was sunk by French intelligence agents in New Zealand.

Greenpeace said the new ship, a 32-year-old Scottish trawler, would continue the mission of its predecessor and sail to the Pacific to protest French nuclear tests in the region.

The sinking of the Rainbow Warrior at Auckland caused a scandal in France and forced the resignation of Defense Minister Charles Hernu.
