LONDON -- British prosecutors said Friday they will not press charges against two Australian DJs over the royal hoax call that preceded a nurse's suicide.
Two Australian DJs impersonated the Queen and her son, Prince Charles, as they phoned London's King Edward VII hospital in December to ask about the condition of the Duchess of Cambridge, formerly Kate Middleton, who had been hospitalized for treatment of morning sickness stemming from her pregnancy.
Nurse Jacintha Saldanha, who put the call through to a colleague, was found hanging in her room three days after the prank was broadcast across the world.
Prosecutors said there was no evidence to support a charge of manslaughter, and despite "some evidence" to warrant further investigation, any potential prosecution would not be in the public interest.
