French Agent Behind Rainbow Warrior Bombing Dies in plane crash


A member of the French Secret Service team that carried out the Rainbow Warrior bombing in 1985 has been killed in a plane crash in the French Alps.

Xavier Maniguet, 62, was one of four men aboard the yacht Ouvea that smuggled explosives used in “Operation Satanic”, which sank the Greenpeace flagship in a bid to stall protests against French nuclear tests in the South Pacific.

Maniguet, a flying instructor, died with a 76-year-old pupil on Monday.
