London (AFP) – A British court ruled in favour of Anglo-Dutch oil giant Shell on Thursday in a case brought by more than 40,000 Niger Delta residents over spills in the region.

The court agreed with the multinational’s argument that the high-profile case should be heard in Nigeria, while the claimants had argued they could only get justice in British courts.
