Colombian Military Kills Important Rebel Commander

BOGOTA – A high-ranking commander of the Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia (FARC) was killed in a military operation, the Colombian armed forces said.

Anibal Guarin Herrera, a.k.a. “Tomate,” led the FARC’s Alirio Torres column and was also responsible for coordinating the Victor Saavedra and Alonso Cortes mobile companies operating in the southwestern province of Valle del Cauca, the military said.

Colombian President Juan Manuel Santos hailed the successful military operation.

“Leader No. 55 eliminated during our administration: alias ‘Tomate’ of the FARC’s Alirio Torres column. Congratulations to the Forces!,” the president said on Twitter.

Colombian authorities had offered a reward of 1.5 billion pesos (about $745,000) for information leading to Guarin’s capture.
