AMSTERDAM, Jan 30 (Reuters) - A Dutch court ruled on Wednesday that Royal Dutch Shell can be held partially responsible for pollution in Nigeria's Niger Delta region and ordered it to pay damages to one farmer.

The court dismissed four out of five allegations against the company. The amount of damages to be paid was to be announced at a later date.
