BOGOTA, Colombia — Colombia’s main rebel movement said Friday that it has been holding a U.S. veteran of the Afghan conflict for nearly a month and offered to release him to a humanitarian commission.
The Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia, or FARC, identified the man as Kevin Scott Sutay and said in a statement on its website that it “captured” him on June 20 in the town of Retorno in the country’s southeast.
No U.S. citizen had been reported missing in Colombia and a U.S. Embassy spokeswoman said she did not immediately have any information on the case.
The FARC said Sutay identified himself as a 2010-11 veteran of the Afghan war who was an anti-mining and explosives specialist in the U.S. Navy until March of this year.
