Washington, July 9 (ANI): Colombian singer Shakira has vowed to carry on the fight to free hostages that are being held in her native Colombia.

The pop superstar, who has been named as the Queen of Spanish music, praised the recent rescue of 15 captives from the Fuerzas Armadas Revolucionarias de Colombia (FARC).

After the release of the captives, who had been held for six years, Shakira spoke out that the fight against terrorism in the country is far from over.

The singer along with other Latin music stars including Alejandro Sanz, Miguel Bose, Juanes, and Carlos Vives, pledged in an open letter to the former hostages that the fight will go on until all the captives who are currently being held are given their freedom.

“We will continue until we see all of them free. Our eyes and lips will not rest until we see and kiss those who remain captives of those without conscience,” Contactmusic quoted the singers as having written. (ANI)
