Ex-hostage's mom to become citizen

September 19, 2008|From Times Wire Reports

Jo Rosano, mother of a U.S. military contractor who was held captive by leftist rebels, will become a Colombian citizen in Washington, D.C., today, when President Alvaro Uribe meets the former hostage, Marc Gonsalves, and two fellow ex-hostages for the first time.

Uribe will give the oath to Rosano, of Bristol, Conn., who will be a dual citizen.

"I love Colombia and I love the people," Rosano said.

Rosano visited the country three times after her son was taken hostage when his plane crashed in February 2003.
