Army Kills 7 FARC Guerrillas in Colombia

BOGOTA – Army troops killed seven suspected Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia, or FARC, guerrillas and wounded three others in the southern province of Guaviare over the weekend, the Armed Forces General Command said.

The fighting took place around Pueblo Nuevo, a village in Guaviare.

The killing of the seven rebels, who belonged to the FARC’s Manuela Beltran unit, dismantled “a logistics node” involved in drug trafficking, the Armed Forces General Command said.

The wounded guerrillas were given first aid at the scene and later taken to hospitals.

FARC guerrillas, meanwhile, threw a grenade at soldiers who were at a park in the southwestern town of Toribio, wounding six people, Colombian television reported.

The rebels threw the grenade Saturday at the soldiers, but it landed in the back yard of a house, eyewitnesses said.

Several people were playing a board game in the back of the house when they heard something land in the yard, a relative of one of the people wounded in the attack said.

The grenade exploded in the back yard, wounding five adults and a child.

Three of the people are listed in serious condition from shrapnel wounds.

Toribio, a town in Cauca province, has been a long-time target of the FARC, but the attacks have intensifed in recent months.

Cauca officials have bolstered security in the town, where a large number of soldiers have been deployed for some time in an effort to cut off FARC units operating in the area. EFE
