Colombia's leftist FARC rebels said Saturday that they will free two captured police officers, Cristian Camilo Yate Sanchez and Victor Alfonso Gonzales Ramirez, and a soldier, Josue Alvarez Meneses, whose abductions had become a source of tension at peace talks with the government and were the first by this rebel group since April 2012 when they freed 10 police and soldiers who had been held captive for years. The FARC said it now is ready to hand their captives over to a delegation from the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) and a nonprofit organization called Colombians for Peace.
