One policeman has been killed and two civilians injured as a helicopter transporting bank money was attacked by alleged members of the FARC in the southwest Colombian department of Cauca, El Pais reported Friday.
The exact amount stolen from the Banco Agraria de Colombia has not been revealed by local authorities, although the media report the figure to be significant.
Alleged members of the FARC’s 30th Front stopped the helicopter before take-off and shot a policeman who died at the scene. Two civilians were also injured in the attack, which occurred in Argelia, Cauca.
It is the second attack on a helicopter carrying remittance money to the same Banco Agraria within recent months. The previous one, also occurring in Cauca, killed six policemen and injured two civilians.
