LONDON - British prosecutors said on Friday two Australian radio hosts who made a prank call to the hospital treating Prince William's pregnant wife Kate would face no criminal charges over the death of a nurse who answered the phone and was later found dead.

Indian-born Jacintha Saldanha, 46, was discovered hanging in her hospital lodgings in London, days after she answered the hoax call from DJs Mel Greig and Michael Christian at Australian radio station 2Day FM. 

She put the call through to a colleague who disclosed details of the Duchess of Cambridge's condition during treatment for an extreme form of morning sickness in the early stages of pregnancy. 

The nurse's subsequent death provoked widespread anger and British police launched an investigation to see if any offences had been committed.
