U.N. shipping agency reaches deal to cut CO2 emissions - delegates

LONDON, April 13 (Reuters) - The United Nations’ shipping agency reached an agreement on Friday to cut carbon emissions following years of slow progress, delegates said.

The compromise plan, which will cut emissions by at least 50 percent by 2050 compared with 2008 levels, fell short of more ambitious targets, they added. (Reporting by Jonathan Saul and Nina Chestney Editing by Susan Fenton)
