It was soon revealed the bombing was ordered by the French Government in an attempt to foil protests of its nuclear weapons testing in the Pacific. Twelve people were on board. Fernando Pereira, a Portugese photographer and father, was trapped in his cabin and drowned. Two French agents were arrested by New Zealand Police and pleaded guilty to charges of manslaughter and willful damage. They only served three years of their 10 year jail sentences.
