COTONOU, April 9 (Reuters) - Voodoo priests cried out in tongues and made sacrificial offerings on Wednesday, imploring God and the ancestors to help free French-Colombian hostage Ingrid Betancourt from the hands of Colombia's FARC rebels.
The ritual by initiates in Benin, the West African home of the ancient religion, was part of a three-day programme of fasting and prayer decreed by President Thomas Yayi Boni for Betancourt, who has been held hostage since 2002.
