Direction Générale de la Sécurité Extérieure (DGSE) is France's foreign intelligence service [1].

The DGSE is probably best known for sinking the Greenpeace vessel Rainbow Warrior in 1985, in Auckland, New Zealand. According to a New Zealand Government publication: "Just before midnight on 10 July 1985, agents of the French Secret Service of DGSE, detonated two limpet mines against the hull of the ship, sinking the vessel and drowning photographer Fernando Pereira."
