Freedom eludes Colombia civilian hostages

While rebel group has released security hostages, many kidnapped civilians remain missing.



    Colombia’s Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia, known as the FARC, released the last of its military and police hostages last week.

    But kidnapping is still a problem in the country and the rebels are still holding an unknown number of civilians for ransom.

    Now, FARC is under pressure to free the civilians but simply determining how many are being held is a complicated task.
