Colombian guerilla group FARC released 4 hostages, three police offers and a civilian, into the jungle last night in what is being called a “goodwill gesture”. The hostages were picked up by a Brazilian Red Cross helicopter, and taken to a small airtport in Eastern Colombia to be reunited with their families. Colombia’s CaracolTV shows the emotional reunion in the above video.
AP reports that while the release is great news, it is being “marred by accusations that Colombia’s military interfered. A reporter who was accompanied the mission, Jorge Enrique Botero, said the military hounded and delayed the mission by more than two hours with numerous flyovers.”
