Security Guard Wounded in Guerrilla Attack in Colombia

BOGOTA – A security guard at a club in Neiva, a city in the southwestern province of Huila, was wounded early Monday in an attack by Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia, or FARC, guerrillas, police said.

A small bomb went off about 4:00 a.m. on the highway that links Neiva to Bogota, near the Los Andaquies club, Huila police chief Col. Jose Maria Lozada said.

One of the club’s guards was wounded and taken to Neiva’s University Hospital for treatment.

Two other bombs were deactivated a short time later near the scene of the blast by specialists from the DAS security service.

Intelligence reports indicate that the FARC’s Teofilo Forero unit carried out the attack, the DAS director in Huila, John Ibañez Ladino, said.

The FARC, which has a strong presence in Huila, kidnapped Garzon city council member Armando Acuña in May and murdered Hobo councilor Mariela Narvaez in September. EFE
