A female guerrilla deserted Colombia's largest rebel army and carried a 4-year-old hostage on a 24-hour jungle trek back to his family, authorities said. The guerrilla hiked through the jungle with Brian Rincon Arias in her arms to reach a military base in the northeast border town of Arauquita on Tuesday, Gen. Jose Joaquin Cortes, head of the army's second division, told local media. The child was kidnapped in June from a nursery school in the city of Cucuta and was placed in the care of the female guerrilla, who was identified only by her nickname, "La Negra." http://www.iht.com/articles/ap/2007/12/05/news/Colombia-Child-Returned.php See also http://www.timesonline.co.uk/tol/news/world/us_and_americas/article3006890.ece for some more background info.
