Colombia’s National Police says it dismantled a camp near the Venezuelan border that was used by drug gang ‘Los Rastrojos’.
Nine members of the drug gang, all demobilized members of paramilitary organization AUC, were arrested in the raid.
A local police commander told the radio station that the authorities had been preparing the raid for three months and had used a spy plane to monitor the area.
Los Rastrojos is one of Colombia’s leading drug gangs and an off-spring of the infamous Norte del Valle Cartel. The organization is primarily active in the south-west of Colombia.
