Royal Dutch Shell chairman off `for weeks'

Cor Herkstroter, chairman of Royal Dutch Shell Group, has been taken to hospital for medical treatment and recuperation that will take "some weeks", a spokesman for the oil giant said. The company declined to say why Mr Herkstroter, who is also president of Royal Dutch Petroleum, was hospitalised. John Jennings, who is chairman of Shell Transport and Trading, will replace Mr Herkstroter as chairman of Shell Group's committee of managing directors.
