Does Kidnapping Continue?

The FARC guerrillas, who are in preliminary peace talks with Colombia's government, say that they have freed all of those they've kidnapped. But these people, who were protesting today on Plaza Bolivar, don't believe them. 

Pais Libre, an anti-kidnapping organization funded by the Colombian government, also says that the guerrillas continue holding more than 400 hostages.

In addition to the allegations of continued hostage holding, according to news reports the guerrillas continue recruiting children to turn them into child soldiers, in violation of all sorts of human rights.
