CARACAS, Venezuela — Colombia announced Wednesday that it had rescued 15 captives held by the FARC rebel group, including Ingrid Betancourt, a former presidential candidate, and three American military contractors held by the guerrillas for more than four years.The rescue of the captives, who were reported to be in good health, marks a major victory in Colombia’s struggle with the Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia, or FARC, a Marxist-inspired insurgency which has been attempting to topple the Colombian government for more than four decades.
