    The clean-up of a contaminated fishing community in Nigeria has finally started, almost 10 years after two oil spills in Niger River Delta.

    In 2008 and 2009, Royal Dutch Shell's 55-year-old pipeline ruptured and spilled millions of litres of crude oil into the creeks and shores of Bodo.

    Al Jazeera's Ahmed Idris reports from Bodo in the Niger Delta.
