Three Police Officers Killed in Attack in Colombia

BOGOTA Three police officers were killed and a fourth was wounded in an attack staged by unidentified individuals in a rural area in Norte de Santander, a Colombian province that borders Venezuela, the National Police said.

The officers, who belonged to a mobile police squad, were attacked outside Cucuta, the capital of Norte de Santander.

The wounded officer was taken to a hospital in Cucuta and is listed in stable condition, the National Police said in a statement.

A reward of up to 70 million pesos (about $27,000) is being offered for information leading to the arrest of those responsible for the attack.

The National Police has not yet identified the group suspected of being behind the attack.

The Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia, or FARC, and the smaller National Liberation Army, or ELN, guerrilla groups, as well as different gangs that smuggle drugs and other contraband, operate along the border with Venezuela.
