Betancourt Advocates for Shalit Release

Gilad Shalit has a new, high-profile supporter.

Ingrid Betancourt, the French-Columbian politician who was rescued from captivity earlier this month in a daring operation by undercover Columbian troops, addressed thousands of supporters in Paris on Sunday, calling for the release of other hostages still held by FARC terrorists.

The following AFP photo shows Betancourt at the rally, holding a sign with a photo of Shalit and the text, "Gilad Shalit, hostage since June 2006."


See here for more details, and here for details about a Spanish newspaper report about Mossad involvement in the Betancourt rescue.
