The FARC released a proof-of-life video of five members of Colombia’s security forces who are being held captive in the jungle.
All of the hostages have been in FARC captivity for several years. One of the hostages in the video has been held by the rebels since 1997.
Messengers sent the 26-minute video to opposition senator and mediator Piedad Cordoba who passed it on to national television.
The videos show testimonies of hostages Alvaro Jose Moreno, Libio Martine, Edgar Yesid Duarte, Elkin Hernandez Rivas and Luis Alberto Erazo.
The FARC is holding 22 members of the armed forces hostage and wants to swap them for hundreds of guerrillas currently in Colombian and U.S. jails.
