Ivory Coast government resigns over pollution [includes comments by Trafigura Beheer]

The entire government of Ivory Coast resigned late Wednesday following a toxic waste scandal in which at least three people died, including two children, and 1,500 others were poisoned... Poisonous chemicals were dumped three weeks ago on open-air garbage sites around...Abidjan... They had been unloaded from the Probo Koala, a...ship...chartered by...Trafigura [Beheer]...[which] said...that the discharge was legal and that an Ivorian company [named Tommy] had been entrusted with handling the unloaded waste. [also refers to Prime Marine]
