US jury awards couple $2 billion in Roundup cancer trial

A California court has handed an unprecedented $2 billion in damages to a couple who say their cancer was caused by popular weedkiller Roundup. That weedkiller is made by Monsanto, a company that now belongs to agrochemical giant Bayer. It was the third successive defeat by Bayer in US courts. It's also the highest award to date by a jury after the key element in Roundup, glyphosate, was linked to cancer.
