Three US military contractors were among the 15 hostages rescued by the Colombian forces that freed Ingrid Betancourt from Farc rebels.

The contractors were working in Colombia as part of America’s 35-year effort to fight the production and sale of narcotics – the so-called US “war on drugs”.

Al Jazeera’s Rosiland Jordan reports on the US reaction to their homecoming.
