Niger Delta oil spill cleanup drags on

Shell has admitted legal liability over 2008 accident but locals are still seeking compensation.

    Three years after a major oil spill in the Niger Delta, Shell still hasn't cleaned up its mess.

    The company finally admitted legal liability last month, but restitution negotiations could drag on. Shell is blaming delays on the country's "security situation".

    Amnesty International rejects that claim and has been campaigning on behalf of locals devastated by the spill for proper compensation.
