Colombia rebels' pledge lifts hopes

Final wait still wrenching for families of captives of FARC, despite group's pledge to free them and stop kidnapping.



    The Colombian rebel group, the FARC, announced last week that it intends to release the last of its captives and stop kidnapping for ransom.
     
    For the families of 10 people currently in FARC custody, the declaration has provided new hope.
