Íngrid Betancourt Photo outside Hôtel de Ville
Last night after work I took myself down to Hôtel de Ville but was a little late for the "rassemblement du bonheur" with the mayor. There were still people milling around however, and a small crowd had gathered near the France 2 anchor as she was preparing for a report.
The screen above the photo used to read OTAGE DEPUIS X JOURS (Hostage for X days), but now alternates between the word LIBRE and the number of days she was eventually held for (2166 I think)
Below it reads (in English)
HONORABLE CITIZEN OF THE CITY OF PARIS
TAKEN ON THE 23 FEBRUARY 2002
HELD IN COLOMBIA
I trimmed this slightly from an earlier version, for anyone wondering where the link has gone.
