COLOMBIA-CHINA-HOSTAGES

One out of a group of four Chinese workers (R) of an oil company just released from their FARC captors, arrives in an ambulance at the airport in Bogota, on November 22, 2012. Four Chinese oil company employees held hostage since June 2011, allegedly by Colombia's FARC rebels, have been freed in southern Colombia, their embassy said Thursday. 'They released the four last night in the department of Caqueta. They are in good spirits,' said the spokesman of China's embassy in Bogota. The official said the identity of the kidnappers was still unknown. He confirmed that the four hostages -- three engineers and a translator -- are Chinese citizens.
