Ingrid Betancourt Details Kidnapping In New Book
This book is attracting a lot of negative attention in Colombia. There is an amazing man named Colin Gardner who lives in Bogota. He was once kidnapped by one of these groups. He was treated horribly and one of his eyes was put out by a female guerilla with a knife. Despite this awful injury he escaped after ninety days and made his way back to his family. Another dear friend in Bogota suffered when her father was kidnapped. In that case a substantial and undisclosed ransom was paid and he was released.
