Shell Faced Suit For Gas Flaring

Oil giant Shell has faced a legal suit from local rural communities

Oil giant Shell has faced a legal suit from local rural communities and western environmentalists over air pollution and global warming by flaring gas in Nigeria.

The lawsuit was lodged in Benin City?s federal high court, Nigeria. The communities intended to highlight the environmental problems ahead of next month's G8 summit on Africa.

The suit was backed by Greenpeace and the World Wildlife Fund.
