(USA)–The Bush administration is proposing an eight million-dollar settlement involving U-S missionaries with the Association of Baptists for World Evangelism in Peru. Last April the Peru/U-S drug interdiction program misidentified their missionary plane as a drug smuggling operation when it was shot down.

Congress must still approve the settlement.
