Colombian workers who were freed by army troops sit in an army base upon their arrival at Yopal March 8, 2011. Colombian troops on Tuesday freed all but one of 23 local oil contractors working for Canada's Talisman Energy after they were snatched a day earlier by FARC rebels in a rare mass kidnapping. Troops on foot and in helicopters were pursuing the kidnappers in the remote eastern jungle region to free the last of the hostages, who were forced by gunman to leave their camp in Vichada province in the country's oil-rich east.
