Colombia's ELN rebels release kidnapped mayor

Colombia’s ELN guerrillas have released a mayor they kidnapped in December amid preliminary talks between the rebels and government on opening a peace process, officials said Sunday. The release of Fredys Palacios, the mayor of the western town of Alto Baudo, was first reported by the army early Sunday. “I was released to the community,” the mayor told Caracol Radio, noting that he had been released the previous evening. The National Liberation Army (ELN), the second-largest leftist rebel group in conflict-torn Colombia, had unilaterally decided to free Palacios, a military source told AFP.
