An American priest kidnaped last week by leftist Colombian guerrillas to protest President Bush's visit to Cartagena for a Latin drug summit was freed. Father Francisco Amico Ferrari, 43, who was released near Cali, said he was treated well by his captors. The National Liberation Army, the group that kidnaped the priest, also seized two other Americans, and they remain in captivity. In Cartagena, guerrillas dynamited a power station and attacked three police posts, wounding five officers.
