Venezuelan helicopters land in Colombia to pick up two hostages

Two Venezuelan helicopters landed in southern Colombia on Thursday to pick up two women who have been held for more than six years by Colombia's largest rebel group. The sensitive operation organized by President Hugo Chavez began after the Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia, or FARC, sent him the coordinates to pick up Clara Rojas - an aide to former Colombian presidential candidate Ingrid Betancourt - and former congresswoman Consuelo Gonzalez. Journalists saw the helicopters painted with International Red Cross markings touch down at a local airport.
