Mixed reactions in Nigeria Shell case

Oil company found "partially" guilty for pollution but only one farmer will be compensated.

    Nigeria's small farmers have won a partial victory over a global oil firm.

    A Dutch judge has ruled that Shell did not do enough to protect its pipelines in Nigeria and prevent pollution.

    But the same court said the company should only compensate one of five farmers who took their case to the Hague.
