Mothers of hostages presumed disappeared by FARC will travel to Habana.

Family members of hostages still presumed to be held by the FARC will travel to Cuba in November to personally ask commanders the fate of their loved ones.

Government and FARC negotiators are expected to resume peace talks in Havana on November 15.

Spokespeople for the FARC have said to this day, the FARC holds zero hostages.

Between 1990 and 2000, there were allegedly 1730 disappeared people in Colombia who are presumed to have been victims of the FARC.

There will be 32 mothers traveling to Havana, and they will represent many families. The mothers will bring photographs and documents to show the FARC negotiators in hopes of finding out the truth about the hostages who have disappeared.

The mothers will ask: Tell me, are our loved ones dead?
