Nigeria will drop criminal charges against an American peace worker, her Nigerian associate and two German filmmakers, who had been accused of endangering national security, the country’s top prosecutor said on Nov. 7. The peace workers were arrested on Sept. 26 and accused of helping the Germans film sensitive oil industry facilities in the violent Niger Delta region and advising them to lie to obtain visas. All four had pleaded not guilty to the charges. (Reuters)
