Reuters

Colombia՛s government urged the ELN rebels to turn over as soon as possible the body of a Russian-Armenian hostage killed in April, "Reuters" reports.

Arsen Voskanyan, 42, was seized by the rebels in northwestern Choco province in November.

"We are urging the (ELN) negotiators in Quito to facilitate the return of the Russian's body to his family, the negotiators have been in touch with the embassy," head government negotiator Juan Camilo Restrepo told journalists.

The ELN's head negotiator, Pablo Beltran, said in his turn that Voskanyan had been buried and confirmed the group was in touch with the Russian embassy in Ecuador.
