World - BP to pay record $18.7 bn over Gulf of Mexico oil spill


British energy giant BP said Thursday it had agreed to pay a record $18.7 billion to compensate the US government and five states for damages stemming from the deadly 2010 Gulf of Mexico oil spill. The spill was sparked by an explosion on the Deepwater Horizon rig which killed 11 men and saw millions of barrels of oil flow into Gulf waters, in one of the worst environmental disasters to strike the United States. It took 87 days to cap BP`s runaway well -- some 5,000 feet (1,500 meters) below sea level off the coast of Louisiana.

World - Ukraine rebels announce disputed elections in October
