Bayer pays out $15.9b to settle Roundup cancer claims

The Germany-based company, which bought Roundup maker Monsanto two years ago, said the settlement would cover about 95,000 cases.

Many of the claims were filed by homeowners and groundskeepers, but the company still faces thousands more claims from people who have not agreed to settle.

The overall sum includes $US1.25b ($1.82b) to settle potential future litigation, which the company has proposed would be covered by a class agreement.
