In Pacific, rising tensions evoke troubling nuclear legacy

FILE – In this March 14, 1946 file photo, natives of Bikini Atoll, scene of upcoming atomic tests, go ashore on the beach at Rongerik Atoll, their new home, after being moved in a Navy LST. Bikini Atoll in the Marshall Islands remains contaminated by radiation, part of a troubling nuclear testing legacy that continues to affect islands and people across the Pacific long after the U.S., Britain and France stopped their testing programs there.
