An oil trading firm has agreed to pay more than $46m (£28m) compensation to people in Ivory Coast who say they were made ill by dumped waste in 2006.

Trafigura, with offices in London, Amsterdam and Geneva, said 30,000 people will each receive $1,546 (£950). The money is in addition to the nearly $200m that the company paid the Ivorian government in 2007.
