THE HAGUE (Reuters) - Royal Dutch Shell faces a lawsuit from four Nigerian villagers on Thursday in a case that could set a precedent for damage claims against international companies.

Filed in a local court in The Hague, where Shell has its joint global headquarters, the case seeks to make Shell and other corporations responsible for pollution from three oil spills between 2004 and 2007 in the Niger Delta region of Africa's top energy producer.
