    Jesse Jackson to mediate Colombia hostage release


    Bogota (AFP) - US rights activist Jesse Jackson agreed to a request from Colombian guerrillas to help mediate the release of a US military veteran the rebels captured in June.
    In a statement published on the website of the daily El Tiempo, the Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia (FARC) asked Jackson to help expedite the release of Kevin Scott Sutay, who was captured in the central-eastern region of Guaviare when he traveled through the area as a tourist.
    Jackson inserted himself in the matter two weeks ago during a global forum of black leaders in Colombia, when he called on the guerrillas to free the American.
