Ingrid Betancourt: 'I felt less than an animal'


In the two years since her dramatic rescue from Colombia's FARC rebels, Ingrid Betancourt has been rebuilding her life but also reliving her six years in captivity.

She has written a new book detailing the despair, escape attempts and tension with her fellow hostages.

Has it helped her to move on or opened up old wounds?

Stephen Sackur talks to Ingrid Betancourt.

You can watch the full interview on Monday 11th October on BBC World News at 0330, 0830, 1530, and 2030 GMT and in the UK on BBC News Channel at 0430 and 2330 BST.
