Colombia Arrests 7 in Probe of Students’ Murder

BOGOTA – Colombian army troops nabbed seven suspected members of the Los Urabeños drug gang during operations they carried out in the northwestern province of Cordoba after two college students were murdered on a Caribbean beach.

The arrests occurred in the northern municipality of Montelibano, according to a communique from the army news agency.

Those taken into custody were in possession of five rifles, two handguns and 3,000 rounds of ammunition, the agency said.

Soldiers and police are rolling out operations in Cordoba to find the killers of Margarita Gomez, 23, and Mateo Matamala, 26, both students at Los Andes University in Bogota.

The students were fatally shot on a beach in San Bernardo del Viento, where their bodies were found last Monday.

Authorities indicated that members of Los Urabeños were responsible for the double murder. Roberto Vargas, leader of one of the gang’s factions, is suspected of being the one who decided on the slaying of the two students. EFE
