Colombia's main leftist rebel group says it plans to release six hostages, including three who have been in captivity for more than 12 years.
The FARC, or Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia, has been at war with the Colombian government since the 1960s. While severely weakened in recent years, the guerrilla group has continued to carry out kidnappings and attack security forces.
It said the hostages to be released include three national police officers, Jorge Trujillo Solarte, Jorge Humberto Romero and Jose Libardo Forero. All of three were taken hostage in 1999.
The names of the other three hostages would be forthcoming, the FARC said.FULL STORY
