The United States will relax its ban on Nigerian flights to allow soccer players and their fans to attend the World Cup, the official news agency said Thursday. The U.S. Embassy in Lagos, which announced Wednesday that Nigeria Airways could not fly to the United States, said it was unable to confirm the Nigerian report. "It's more complicated than that," embassy spokeswoman Arlene Jacquette said. She said she could say no more about the matter until today.
