It has been 10 years since a ship named the 'Probo Koala' unloaded toxic waste into Abidjan’s ports, sickening hundreds of thousands and killing at least 15. A decade after the scandal, Ivorian authorities say they have cleaned the dumping sites and taken measures to make sure this doesn't happen again. Despite this, the victims are still demanding justice and compensation.
