Colombia’s largest rebel group FARC on Wednesday reportedly carried out a bomb attack using a dog as the vehicle for the explosives.
The attack was against a police station in the municipality of El Charco, located in the department of Nariño on the Pacific coast.
According to Radio Santa Fe, the bomb was strapped around the dogs body and detonated by remote control, with the animal approximately 50 meters from the police station.
It is reported that two people were injured in the attack, while six homes within the vicinity of the police station were damaged.
According to Elespectador the attack is retaliation for the capture of seven members of the FARC’s 29th front last week.
The rebels are in negotiations with the government at present seeking an end to the armed conflict, yet no ceasefire was agreed.
