An explosives attack damaged the railroad connecting the northern Colombian coalmine of multinational Cerrejon to the Caribbean coast Thursday. Authorities have blamed the FARC for the attack.
A wagon and the rails of the railroad were damaged when a bomb went off near the village of Remedios.
Local authorities blame the FARC’s 59th Front for the attack.
According to Cerrejon, the explosion “did not cause derailment, but did [cause] damage to one of the wagons.” The bomb allegedly blew a three-feet wide and one-foot deep hole.
The attack was the second one this month; a similar explosives attack hampered the transport of coal on August 8.
