Colombia: Rebels to free captured French journalist

Text size Aa Aa

Colombian FARC rebels say they will release captured French journalist Romeo Langlois on Wednesday.

He was seized last month during clashes between fighters from the group and troops, who were carrying out an anti-drug raid in the south of the country.

Langlois was reporting for television news channel France 24 and is said to have suffered an injury to his arm.

The drug-funded FARC has described Langlois as “a prisoner of war” because he was wearing army-issued clothing.
