Boost for N-test veterans' case


Servicemen claim they were not given adequate protection
New research shows an apparent link between British nuclear tests in the 
South Pacific in the 1950s and genetic defects seen in veterans.
Massey University in New Zealand said changes to veterans' chromosomes could 
be attributed to their participation in the tests at Christmas Island.
Lawyers for British veterans who served there said the study strengthened 
their claim against the Ministry of Defence.
The MoD, which has denied the claim, said it would review the new findings.
