The Telegraph (UK) reveals IRA suspects 'were studying peace':
Three Irish republicans charged with training Colombian rebels have issued a statement insisting they were in the country to observe the peace process.
James Monaghan, Niall Connolly and Martin McCauley are accused of training Farc insurgents in explosives and other techniques for about a month.

The three were arrested at Bogota's airport 14 months ago after visiting a rebel stronghold in southern Colombia. If convicted they face between 15 and 20 years in prison.

"We visited Colombia to get to know the people, the natural beauty and the peace process between (former) President Andres Pastrana and the FARC guerrillas," the statement said.
