Three policemen have been injured by an alleged FARC attack on their vehicle as they were travelling in the west-central Colombian department of Tolima.

The policemen were travelling between the two Tolima cities of Ibague and Cajamarca when members of the FARC allegedly threw a bomb at the vehicle.

All three of the men were taken to the nearest hospital and treated for their wounds, although their injuries are not thought to be serious.

The road was temporarily closed as authorities searched the area but has now been reopened.
