TOKYO -- A lengthy dispute over a doomed Algerian construction project ended Thursday with Japanese contractor Kajima ordered to pay over 5.5 billion yen ($48 million) in restitution to three parties.

The Japan Commercial Arbitration Association told Kajima to pay fellow contractors Taisei, Nishimatsu Construction and Hazama Ando. The three complainants will shoulder the roughly 300 million yen in costs associated with the arbitration process.
