Colombian rebel leader deported from Bolivia to Mexico

Immigration authorities in Mexico have taken custody of a Colombia rebel leader, deported from Bolivia.

The international spokesman of the Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia, FARC Marco Leon Calarca, was arrested by Bolivian police at the airport in La Paz on Tuesday.

But, as Colombia didn't request his extradition, he was sent to Mexico, where he's lived for the last five years.
