Colombian Rebels Free Hostage After 12 Years
Today a soldier held hostage in the jungles of Colombia was finally freed. Colombian rebels handed over their hostage, Sergeant Pablo Emilio Moncayo, to a Red Cross team. As this was the second hostage freeing this week, many are hopeful for a deal with the FARC, a powerful rebel force in Colombia. Moncayo, now 32 years old, says, "You have no idea how staggering it is to return to civilization."
