Marxist rebels have kidnapped reporter Ruth Morris, of dual British and
American nationality and Scott Dalton in a war-torn stretch of eastern
Colombia where the two were working together on a freelance assignment
for the Los Angeles Times. The rebel group, the National Liberation
Army (ELN), detained them in the province of Arauca, where U.S. Special
Forces are training government troops, and said their release would
depend on undefined "political and military conditions." REUTERS/Eliana
