Dutch woman Farc fighter has no regrets

Members of the Colombian armed insurgent group, the Farc, are currently holding the first peace talks in a decade with the Colombian government.

At the table with them in Havana is a young Dutch woman who went to Colombia as a language student and ended up fighting in the ranks of Latin America's oldest guerrilla movement.

Tanja Nijmeijer's family have tried to persuade her out of the jungle, and failed; now she is wanted on terrorism charges in both Colombia and the United States.

During a break in the peace talks, she told the BBC's Sarah Rainsford about her hopes for the dialogue - but says she has no regrets about joining the Farc.
