Colombian leftist rebels holding peace talks with the government insisted Wednesday that none of their people should end up in jail for fighting in the five-decade-old war.The FARC reject it, saying it seeks only to punish the guerrillas while contending the government is mainly to blame for war-related violence.The comment was made by Pastor Alape, one of five FARC negotiators here in Havana.He was asked in an interview with the Colombian newspaper El Tiempo if the guerrillas would accept prison sentences if business people, politicians and military people involved in the war also went to jail.
