Colombian Troops Kill 10 Rebels

BOGOTA – Ten guerrillas were killed and four other captured in an operation against leftist FARC rebels in the western province of Choco, a Colombian military source told Efe on Thursday.

The combined air and ground assault targeted a jungle encampment of the 30th Front of the Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia, the Andean nation’s largest insurgency.

Government forces suffered no casualties in the engagement, which followed extensive intelligence work by the National Police, according to media accounts.

The rebels were apparently caught by surprise and troops seized arms and war materiel from the FARC camp.

The FARC, which once had as many as 20,000 fighters but is now thought to number around 7,000, has battled a succession of Colombian governments for more that four decades. EFE
