Updated 4 February 2013, 12:05 AEDT

The French government was due to give its side of the story over the weekend on claims that construction work has begun on Murorora atoll, the former French nuclear test site in the Pacific.

The ruling pro-independence party, Tavini Huiraatira, has told reporters some kind of building, possibly a bunker, is being built on the atoll.

Presenter: Geraldine Coutts

Speaker: John Doom, national co-ordinator for the Association of Former Nuclear Site Workers of Murorora
