BP To Face Criminal Charge

BP may face criminal charges over the explosion at its giant Texas refinery that killed 15 workers last March

BP may face criminal charges over the explosion at its giant Texas refinery that killed 15 workers last March.

The US Department of Labour has referred the case to the Department of Justice, which will now decide whether to pursue it.

The news came on the same day that BP issued its final report on the blast at its Texas City refinery near Houston, which also injured 170 people.

BP said "management failures" and "employee mistakes" were responsible.
