    Background: Explosion of the French atom bomb at Reggan in the Sahara desert, Feb 13, continues to arouse hostile demonstrations - one of the latest being in Monrovia, Liberia, Mar 1.

    Members of the Students International Cosmopolitan Association, led by their sword-bearing Grand Marshal, went in procession to the French Embassy carrying banners and placards. "History will condemn France" read one slogan.

    French officials declined to see the demonstrators, who left some of their banners and a written protest at the Embassy.
