Shell settles Nigerian killings lawsuit  
 

Royal Dutch Shell has been accused of supporting the execution and torture of protesters opposed to its operations in Nigeria during the 1990s.

As a lawsuit against the company over the issue was due to go to trial in New York, the oil company agreed to settle out of court, paying $15.5m to the families of executed activists.
