NotesNews: 9 July: A ban on all shipping in a 60-mile zone around the Pacific atoll of Mururoa was announced by France. In spite of the French ban, the New Zealand Government intended to send its 2,400-ton frigate Otago, carrying a Cabinet minister, a scientist and crew of 245, inside the zone, although it would keep outside of the 12-mile French territorial limit round Mururoa. New Zealand's other protest ship in the danger zone was the schooner Fri. [The Times]
