Colombia plane crash: Four children found alive in Amazon after 40 days

Four children have been found alive after surviving a plane crash and spending weeks fending for themselves in Colombia's Amazon jungle.[BBC]

Colombia's president said the rescue of the siblings, aged 13, nine, four and one, was "a joy for the whole country".

The children's mother and two pilots were killed when their light aircraft crashed in the jungle on 1 May.

The missing children became the focus of a huge rescue operation involving dozens of soldiers and local people.

President Gustavo Petro said finding the group was a "magical day", adding: "They were alone, they themselves achieved an example of total survival which will remain in history."
