Colombia police: Kidnapped Germans in good health

BOGOTA, Colombia (AP) — Two German retirees who have been held captive for more than three months by leftist rebels are in good health, Colombia’s anti-kidnapping police chief said Thursday.

The official, Gen. Humberto Guatibonza, also said at a news conference that the two were seized Nov. 3 by the National Liberation Army, or ELN, Colombia’s No. 2. rebel group.

Brothers Guenther Otto Breuer, 72, and Uwe Breuer, 69, were detained while apparently on a global driving journey that had previously taken them to China, Iran, Iraq and much of South America.
