Shell pays $15.5 million for Ken Saro-Wiwa

This is pretty unbelievable. Shell reaches a settlement to pay $15.5 million in relation to the killing of Nigerian Delta activists including Ken Saro-Wiwa.

By paying out this settlement, Shell is avoiding the disclosure in open court of much more detail about the campaign coordinated between Shell and the Nigerian army to raid villages, to kill, andto clear opposition from their oil claim.

(Interesting this makes top stories in Britain (BBC), but not US.)
