Bogota: The Colombian air force launched an air raid on a Marxist FARC rebel camp on Wednesday, killing 12 guerrillas, Defence Minister Gabriel Silva said.
"The Air Force, along with police, carried out an operation against the Teofilo Forero front (of the Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia), which resulted in a preliminary toll of 12 killed," Silva told reporters.
Silva did not say if any FARC leaders were killed in the raid, which took place near the rural town of Puerto Rico in Caqueta province in southern Colombia.
