Liverpool Football Star Reunited With Father


November 15, 2023

Colombian football star Luis Díaz has been reunited with his father Luis Manuel Díaz who was released by rebels after holding him hostage for 12 days.

The Liverpool striker and his father cried as they hugged each other for the first time since his release last Thursday to United Nations and Catholic Church officials.

Luis Manuel Díaz’s abduction by the National Liberation Army (ELN) for ransom caused outrage in Colombia and abroad.

The ELN leader described the abduction of the popular coach as a “mistake” but has insisted that kidnappings for ransom are not a breach of the ceasefire it signed earlier this year.
