Bonjour Chris,

Chris and Paul are correct! Clipperton is indeed the thirteenth territory that is missing from the text. 

Here is a link about this little very small atoll: Clipperton

I hope this is helpful.

Bonne journée !

Hi Chris,

Not sure just what it is that you are querying, but are you aware that by "clicking" on the text if you are unclear; there will be an explanation immediately available at that point as required?

I used Google and found the missing 13th territory: Clipperton.

Yes Chris I think you are right. Although they don’t mention it in the clip, they must be counting Clipperton Island as one of the 13 “morceaux”, even though it is just a tiny uninhabited coral atoll off Mexico.
