Colombia's FARC rebels release French reporter

BOGOTA - Colombia's FARC guerrillas freed French reporter Romeo Langlois on Wednesday, a month after taking him hostage in a firefight that showed the leftist group is still a menace despite a decade of military blows.
Langlois, a reporter for France 24, was taken hostage in the southern Caqueta region on April 28 after he was caught in crossfire between a Colombian military unit he was embedded with and heavily-armed FARC rebels.
Television images showed him smiling and saying he had been well treated by his rebel captors.
