It was the third hostage release in two weeks by the National Liberation Army (ELN), and came hours before a joint announcement by the leftist guerrillas and the government in the Venezuelan capital Caracas. Venezuela’s foreign ministry said the announcement, scheduled for 8:00 pm (midnight GMT), would be “important.” Sources close to both the Colombian government and the ELN said the news had to do with an “advance” in the peace process.
