Hostage set free by FARC rebels


Colombia’s FARC rebels have released a kidnapped local politician. He is the first of five hostages they plan to set free this week.

Marcos Baquero was snatched 19 months ago.

FARC is currently holding more than 16 other hostages but the government wants them all released before it is willing to engage in peace talks.
