Colombia's president claims Farc rebels holding French reporter
Issued on: Modified:
Colombia's President Juan Manuel Santos has suggested strongly that French journalist Roméo Langlois is in the hands of Farc rebels. Santos said he holds the left-wing guerrillas responsible for the journalist's well-being. Farc has not claimed they have Langlois.
Langlois disappeared at the weekend after a clash between Farc and Colombian soldiers in the south of the country.
He was travelling with the soldiers while he was working on a story about the illicit drug trade in Colombia.
Latin America-watcher Colin Harding discusses what Langlois' disappearance could have to do with the current relations between the government and Farc.
