Colombian rebels to release 2 hostages, Red Cross says

In addition, the remains of a police officer who died after eight years in captivity are to be handed over by the Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia, the Red Cross said.

The Red Cross discussed its role a day after liberal opposition Sen. Piedad Cordoba announced that operations for the release of Pablo Emilio Moncayo, who has been held for 12 years, and Josue Daniel Calvo, who has been held for one year, are to begin Saturday.
