One of Colombia's longest-held hostages has been reunited with his family, after 12 years in captivity.

Pablo Emilio Moncayo was a teenager when he was kidnapped in 1997 by the Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia (Farc).

Farc still holds at least 20 police and soldiers as well as dozens of civilians, and now wants the Colombian government to approve an exchange of jailed rebels for remaining captives.
