HAVANA -- Colombia's main rebel army has marked the arrival of its Dutch combatant in Cuba for peace talks with two YouTube videos. One shows Tanja Nijmeijer arriving. In the other, the 34-year-old sings and plays guitar.
A delegate of the Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia in Havana alerted The Associated Press to the music video. In it, Nijmeijer raps about how she's earned the trip.
The video segues into a ballad she sings about FARC field marshal Jorge Briceno, who was slain in a 2010 government bombing raid that Nijmeijer survived.
