  2. Farc set to release five hostages

    Colombia: The country’s largest left-wing guerilla group has announced that it plans to release five captives and will deliver them to trusted ex-senator Piedad Cordoba once the government offers security guarantees.

    The Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia, or Farc, declared in a communique that it would free a police major, an army corporal and a marine as well as two councillors from a south-eastern town.

    Farc continues to hold some 22 soldiers and police and an unknown number of civilians.

    It has freed 14 captives since January 2008.
