(AP) British safari driver David Simpson was released after five months of incarceration in the Central African Republic on suspicion of killing 13 people.


Deputy Prosecutor, Magistrate Romaric Martian Kpangba-Kingo said that all charges have been dropped against Simpson. He is still in Bangui awaiting permission to return to Britain.


In local reports Simpson says that despite his ordeal he hopes to resume work as a safari guide.


Simpson was arrested on March 26 after he reported the discovery of the bodies of 13 people by a small-scale gold mine in the east.


The victims' hands were bound behind their backs and had machete wounds. Simpson's lawyers claimed he was innocent and charged the the killings may have been committed by the Lord's Resistance Army.
