BP Chief Executive To Testify Over Explosion

BP's chief executive has been told to testify over the firm's Texas refinery explosion

BP's chief executive Lord Browne, has been told to testify over the firm's Texas refinery explosion that killed 15 and injured hundreds more in 2005.

A judge has ruled that plaintiffs can seek a deposition from Lord Browne in their case against the firm.

A BP spokesperson said: "We respect the judge's decision and are weighing the options."

The firm recently announced a complete review of its global operations following last year's Texas blast.
