No Accord on Bhopal Settlement

November 27, 1987|Associated Press

BHOPAL, India — Lawyers for Union Carbide and the government of India today told an Indian judge that they failed to agree on an out-of-court settlement in the case resulting from the disastrous release of poison gas here in 1984.

The gas release, the world's worst industrial accident, killed 2,850 people and injured at least 20,000 others. Judge M. W. Deo said he will consider a request for interim relief to victims of the leak. The Indian government is suing for $3 billion in damages.
