The Colombian army dismantles 600kg of explosives allegedly planned to be used to attack a military base in the southern Caqueta department.
Eight suspected FARC bomb cylinders were discovered following an anonymous tip-off that the base would be targeted on Sunday night.
The devices were deactivated in a controlled explosion.
An army spokesman said, “The commander of the Tenth Second Brigade is grateful to the population for this opportune information and extends the invitation to keep reporting [suspicions] on the free lines 146 and 147 available 24 hours a day.”
Guerrilla activity in Caquera has intensified over recent years, with foreign oil companies being a favored target of attacks.
