Nigeria´s main militant group offers cease-fire

Nigeria’s main militant group says it is declaring a unilateral cease-fire.

The Movement for the Emancipation of the Niger Delta said in a statement Sunday that it would halt attacks starting midnight Tuesday and would launch no more attacks until further notice. The group behind two years of crippling attacks on Nigeria’s oil infrastructure said it was heeding calls by elders in the restive southern oil region for the militants to give peace efforts another try.
