US Mistrial For Colobian Rebel

a US judge has declared a mistrial in the case of Colombian rebel leader Ricardo Palmera,after a jury could not agree on a verdict. The Farc rebel leader was facing four charges of terrorism and hostage-taking over the kidnapping of three US contractors in Colombia in 2003. He was sent to the US in 2004 and was the most senior Farc rebel yet tried here. On Monday, Palmera was found guilty of plotting to capture the Americans, who are still being held in a jungle camp.
