Rebels in Colombia have finally released 10 hostages.
Farc rebels had 10 police and military hostages left, some of whom had been in captivity for 14 years. The hostages were collected by the Brazilian military from the jungle.
Farc, or the Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia, has been fighting since the 1960s against the Colombian government, becoming Latin America’s oldest insurgency. They have begun to lose power recently, but still have an unknown number of civilian hostages.
Photos of the former hostages have shown them waving and punching the air as they got off the military helicopter that brought them to safety in the city of Villavicencio. They were welcomed by relatives and received medical check ups prior to being taken to Bogota.
Colombian President Juan Manuel Santos is pleased with the releases, however is not ready to open peace talks with the group. He warned that his government would continue to work against the Farc until all hostages are freed.
