Host Bob Edwards talks to American journalist Mark Schapiro about Colombian Senator and Presidential Candidate Ingrid Betancourt, who was kidnapped last month by FARC guerrillas. In return for her release, they are demanding that Colombia's government free FARC members who are held in captivity. Schapiro's piece about Betancourt appears in the April issue of Elle magazine.
