Ingrid Betancourt has French and Colombian origins. But she is mainly a Colombian politician. She was kidnapped by the FARC ( Fuerzas armadas revolucionarias de Colombia - The Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia ) on February 23, 2002 while campaigning for the presidency in Colombia. Today, she is a hostage for more 2000 days... The relations between France and Colombia are not very bad but it is rather difficult between the Colombian government and the FARC.
