Chevron profits shadowed by human rights complaints

Despite higher profits on record oil prices, the board of directors at Chevron Corp, the No. 2 U.S. petroleum producer, was lambasted at the company's annual meeting Wednesday. Shareholders and activists urged company officials to take responsibility for the environmental and human costs of oil production. They harangued the board on a range of human rights abuses in such countries as Ecuador, Nigeria and Myanmar. [also refers to PetroEcuador]
