BOGOTÁ, Colombia – Four Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia (FARC) terrorists died and two were injured during a bombing by the Colombian Air Force in the southwestern department of Caquetá, military officials said.

The Air Force bombed the FARC’s Teófilo Forero Column in a rural, jungle area in the municipality of San Vicente at dawn on April 30, according to Germán Giraldo, the commander of the Army’s Sixth Division.

The wounded guerrillas were taken to a local hospital for treatment. The military also seized three rifles, two pistols and ammunition, Giraldo said.
