Virginia Tech survivor deal

Survivors and the families of those killed in the Virginia Tech massacre a year ago have agreed an US$11 million deal with the state.

Virginia Governor, Tim Kaine said a substantial majority of the families of victims had approved the settlement.

More than 30 people died and dozens were hurt when student Cho Seung-hui went on a campus rampage in April 2007.

Lawyers said the settlement, which was designed to prevent future lawsuits would help families meet medical and other costs.
