ICRC coordinating a FARC Hostage Release

It appears that this time, when the FARC guerrillas notice someone on the helicopter wearing a Red Cross logo, it really will be someone from the ICRC...

The Government of Brazil has let word get to the media that they will be supplying two helicopters to support an operation, but without stating who will be receiving the hostages, or when... other than "soon".

The FARC had announced in December, through intermediaries, that they would be releasing six hostages: four from the Colombian Military; two politicians.

The price has so far been left unstated.
