Dutch environmental group Milieu Defensie says oil producers have to be held responsible for climate change. It's threatening to sue Royal Dutch Shell, one of the largest fossil fuel producers, unless it agrees to invest more in renewable energies.
A corruption trial against oil giants Shell and Eni and Nigeria's ex-oil minister Dan Etete is getting started in Milan. The case deals with alleged bribes valuing millions, and the Italian trial is not the only one.
The woman thought the unexploded World War II shell she found could be taken home as a souvenir. She reportedly washed it in her hotel room to not get her clothes dirty, but wasn't worried about an explosion.
The UK will order territories to make names of owners of shell companies public by December 31, 2020. It is the latest effort to tackle the corruption and tax avoidance that run rampant in Britain's overseas holdings.
Rights organization Amnesty International says Shell and Eni have failed to properly address serious oil spills in the Niger Delta region.
