AUSTIN, Texas (AP) — The Latest on the indictment of two anti-abortion activists who made an undercover video of Planned Parenthood (all times local):

10:30 a.m.

Two anti-abortion activists who made undercover videos about Planned Parenthood are accused of using fake driver's licenses to infiltrate the group.

Indictments made public Tuesday allege that David Daleiden and Sandra Merritt each used California driver's licenses they knew were false "with the intent to defraud and harm another."

Both of them face a charge of tampering with a governmental record, a felony. Daleiden was also indicted on a misdemeanor count related to purchasing human organs.

The videos alleged that Planned Parenthood illegally sold fetal tissue to researchers for profit.

The Houston grand jury that indicted the two also investigated Planned Parenthood but concluded that the abortion provider committed no wrongdoing.
