Witness: Weathermen radicals in the USA

In March 1970, three white middle-class revolutionaries from the Weatherman movement accidentally killed themselves at their New York safehouse.

They died when the pipe bombs they were planning to use at a military base accidentally went off in the basement.

Witness speaks to Cathy Wilkerson, one of the survivors of the blast.
