Colombia's FARC to free hostages

Families prepare for homecomings with leftist rebels expected to release their last captives soon.

    The Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia, or FARC, is expected to release the last 10 police officers and soldiers it is holding hostage in the coming days.

    Kidnapping has been a key tactic of the leftist fighters for decades.

    Families of the remaining hostages are making final preparations for their release.
