Alleged guerrillas of the FARC have killed two soldiers during a Holy Week procession in the central south of Colombia, several media reported Saturday.
The incident took place on Friday in a village just outside the town of San Vicente de Caguan.
According to the reports, at least two FARC guerrillas of the rebel group’s Eastern Bloc opened fire on the soldiers who were providing security during a Good Friday procession. One civilian was injured in the attack.
A regional army commander general accused the FARC of having “no scruples in taking advantage of a religious procession” in order to further their political ends.
Following the attack, the guerrillas fled the town on motorcycles.
