Dutch FARC rebel faces prosecution

The Colombian authorities have issued formal complaints against 45 members of the FARC guerilla group, including Dutch national Tanja Nijmeijer, Nos tv reports.

Nijmeijer has been with the rebels since 2002 and hit the headlines in 2007 after parts of her diary were found abandoned in a camp.
Nos says Colombian anti-terror forces have found a usb stick containing information about Nijmeijer and the other suspects who are all said to be active members of the movement.
