A brief history of French Polynesia

French Polynesia is a sovereign country in Australia-Oceania, with a total land area of approximately 4,167 sq km. The French annexed various Polynesian island groups during the 19th century. In September 1995, France stirred up widespread protests by resuming nuclear testing on the Mururoa atoll after a three-year moratorium. The tests were halted in January 1996. In recent years, French Polynesia's autonomy has been considerably expanded.
