PARIS - A French journalist missing after a gunfight between Colombian security forces and the Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia (FARC) on Saturday has been taken prison by the drug-funded rebels, Foreign Minister Alain Juppe said on Sunday.

Romeo Langlois, a freelance reporter for French television news channel France 24, "was kidnapped during a clash between Colombian troops and the FARC", Juppe told French media on Sunday.

"The journalist was taken prisoner ... the crisis center (of the foreign ministry) has been mobilized and is liaising with Colombian authorities."

A foreign ministry spokesman declined to provide further information.
