Extracts from article

European equities collapsed on Friday, left vulnerable after a dramatic late sell-off in New York extended the sustained losing streak on world stock markets.

Banking stocks once more faced heavy selling as confidence in the international financial system continued to drain away, taking leading indices to fresh five-year lows.

The benchmark index gave up 53 points over the previous session in an afternoon surrender which wiped out an attempt at a recovery. Before the start of trade on Friday, the London index stood 666½ points lower on the week, a loss over four consecutive sessions of 13.4 per cent. read more

The family of the slain writer and Ogoni rights activist, Ken Saro-Wiwa, has said the impending trial of oil giant, Royal Dutch Shell Petroleum, in the United States over the 1995 hanging of Saro-Wiwa and eight other Ogoni activists is a big relief.

THISDAY had reported yesterday that after several years of litigation, the trial of Royal Dutch Shell for alleged complicity in the murder of Saro-Wiwa and eight Ogoni activists will be held next year.

The case entitled Wiwa v. Royal Dutch Shell and Wiwa v. Anderson concerns the November 10, 1995 hangings of Ken Saro-Wiwa and eight other members of the Movement for the Survival of the Ogoni People (MOSOP) known as “Ogoni Nine” and the shooting of a woman protesting the bulldozing of her farm by Shell in preparation for a pipeline project. read more
