(Reuters) - A grand jury has indicted two BP Plc employees on 23 criminal counts related to the Deepwater Horizon oil spill in 2010, Attorney General Eric Holder said on Thursday.

The two highest-ranking BP supervisors aboard the rig will face a range of manslaughter and other charges, Holder said.

A former senior BP executive was also charged with misleading Congress about the spill.
