Four widows of Nigerian activists launch civil case against Shell

In tonight's edition: Shell faces a civil case in a Dutch court brought by the widows of Nigerian activists executed in 1995; three NGOs file a lawsuit against French bank BNP Paribas, accusing it of "complicity" in the 1994 genocide in Rwanda; and Madagascar still has the highest rate of poverty in the world.

Dangerous liaisons: the relationship between Shell and the Nigerian government is likely to be under scrutiny once more. The oil giant is facing a civil case in the Dutch court brought by the widows of the Ogoni 9, executed in 1995.

Also, three NGOs file a lawsuit against French bank BNP Paribas, accusing it of "complicity" in the 1994 genocide of the Tutsi minority in Rwanda.

And four years after the presidential election that many hoped would bring the country out of political and economic turmoil, Madagascar still has the highest rate of poverty in the world. There has been some improvements, but corruption continues to hold back progress.
