The last 10 military and police captives of Colombia's main rebel group were freed Monday and were returned to their families after at least 12 years spent in jungle prisons.
The six police and four soldiers who were released underscored hard work to seek peace talks by the Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia, Latin America's oldest and most powerful guerrilla band, which has been emaciated by Colombia's U.S.-backed military.
From a jungle assembly point, the freed captives were airlifted by a Brazilian air force helicopter inscribed with the Red Cross logo to Villavicencio. They were met and escorted by nurses as they waved happily to awaiting relatives for reunions behind closed doors. Some even leaped for joy on the runway
All men looked newly shaven and some of them have pets with them such as a monkey, a peccary, two small birds. A few draped Columbian colors over their shoulders.
It was a great moment for their loved ones.
