This report examines the inquest into the death of twenty-three British people who died in the Waco, Texas disaster and the open verdict which has been reached.

Kirt Lyons, a lawyer representing the victims' families, filed a US$500 million civil lawsuit against the American government. In another report, two of Africa's largest banana producing countries, Cameroon and the Ivory Coast have asked for an increase in the amount of bananas they can export to Europe following the addition of three countries to the European Union this year.
