Final preparations are under way in Colombia for the promised release of the last 10 military and police captives held by the FARC rebel group.

Two Brazilian helicopters are standing by to collect the first hostages from a secret jungle location today.

Military operations in the area have been suspended.

President Juan Manuel Santos has made the release of all hostages’ one condition for opening talks with the FARC to end five decades of conflict.

He also wants the left-wing group to end all attacks and stop drug trafficking and the recruitment of children.
