An offensive by the FARC on different places in Colombia Friday left
eight members of the security forces and five guerrillas dead and one
government official kidnapped by guerrillas.
The army says it is still trying to catch the guerrillas that attacked the army troops.
In Huila, three men died when guerrillas attacked the town of Garzon and attacked one of the city’s council members. According to official sources, the guerrillas were planning a massive kidnapping of local representatives, but were stopped by the guards.
