Betancourt 'selfish in captivity'

Breaking News

Ingrid Betancourt, a former prisoner of Farc rebels in Colombia, was selfish and domineering in captivity, three fellow hostages say in a new book.

In their memoir, the three US military contractors describe their five-year ordeal in the jungles of Colombia.

One of them says that Ms Betancourt was even worse than the Farc guards.

Ms Betancourt, the French-Colombian ex-politician, received a hero's welcome upon her rescue last year. She has not commented on the Americans' account.
