daily quiz rainbow warrior memorial sunk by france secret agents
Answer: Time for the answer. The memorial was set up for the international activists group Greenpeace's erstwhile lead vessel, Rainbow Warrior, at Matauri Bay, New Zealand. Rainbow Warrior was the lead ship in the protest against France's planned nuclear tests in one of it's territories in the Pacific region. To thwart any protest against the Government of France, a secret operation was planned and given the go ahead from Paris. When anchored at Matauri Bay, inside New Zealand's territorial water, it was sunk by the French Secret Services agents.
