Bombs Wound 2, Damage 40 Dwellings in Southwest Colombia

BOGOTA – Two people were wounded and about 40 dwellings damaged Thursday by two bombs set off by FARC guerrillas in the southwestern Colombian city of Buenaventura, officials said.

The two wounded people, who have already been released from the hospital, were hit by flying glass, a spokesman for the emergency management office told several media outlets.

The two medium-sized bombs shattered the windows of several houses, the official said.

Police suspect that the 30th Front of the Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia, or FARC, guerrilla group was behind the bombing.

Buenaventura, Colombia’s main Pacific port, has been the scene of a number of bombings in recent years.

The port city has also been a battleground between leftist guerrillas and right-wing paramilitary groups trying to gain control of the drug trade in Buenaventura, which is strategically located between the coast and the mountains.

The proceeds from trafficking cocaine, which is smuggled into the United States and countries in Europe, are used to finance the operations of illegal armed groups. EFE
