Text size Aa Aa

French journalist Romeo Langlois has been freed after being held for more than a month by Colombia’s FARC guerrilas.

The 35-year-old was taken hostage on April 28 in the southern Caqueta region after he was caught in the crossfire between a government military unit and heavily armed FARC rebels.

Langlois was, at the time, embedded with the Colombian troops.

Television images show him smiling and describing that he had been well treated.

Langlois suffered an arm injury during his capture.
