Roadside Bomb Wounds 3 Police Officers in Colombia

BOGOTA – FARC dissidents set off a roadside bomb as a police patrol approached in Calamar, a city in the southern Colombian province of Guaviare, wounding three officers, officials said.

The patrolman and two other officers hurt in Monday’s attack “are out of danger, since their wounds are not serious,” Guaviare police chief Col. Miguel Angel Botia said.

The attack was staged by the 1st Front of the Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia (FARC), which has rejected the peace agreement with the government, Botia said.

“This incident is being blamed on militias commanded by dissidents from the FARC’s 1st Front who commit crimes in this part of Guaviare province,” Botia told Noticias Caracol.

On May 3, FARC dissidents under the command of Ivan Mordisco kidnapped Harley Lopez, who worked for the PINS crop-substitution program, in Barranquillita, a remote village outside the city of Miraflores in Guaviare.

The dissident rebels, who operate in Guaviare, rejected the peace agreement signed by FARC leaders and the government on Nov. 24, 2016, in Bogota.
