US gets greenlight to impose $7.5 billion in tariffs on EU goods

The US has been given the go-ahead to impose tariffs on $7.5 billion worth of goods it imports from the EU.
It is the latest chapter in a 15-year battle between the US and the EU over illegal subsidies for planemakers Airbus and rival Boeing.
The ruling by the World Trade Organization (WTO) could mean tariffs on EU goods ranging from aircraft parts to cheese and salmon fillets.
Brussels has threatened to retaliate similarly against US products.
