UK: Shell warns of further job cuts
The Anglo-Dutch oil firm Shell has announced 1000 more jobs will be cut by the end of 2011, in addition to the 1000 it had already planned. The job losses are part of a cost-cutting strategy which aims to reduce expenditure by $1bn (£664m) this year. Shell has not revealed which areas would be affected by the job reduction programme.
