Colombia’s intelligence service and army seized a cache
of rebel arms and explosives found Tuesday in southern Colombia,
The explosives and arms belonged to the
Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia (FARC) rebels, said the
Administrative Department of Security (DAS).
A factory that housed the explosives and weapons amid the jungle in Vistahermosa was destroyed, the DAS said.
Heavy machines and vehicles that were
used by the FARC to open roads between the jungle and the mountainous
zones of Sumapaz also were found, the DAS said.
The DAS and the Colombian army
seized 250 kg of TNT, 1,082 gallons of sulfuric acid, 800 gallons of
ethylic alcohol and a great number of supplies used to make explosives.
“The factory was a strategic site for the FARC, where all the war material for the Eastern Bloc is produced,” the DAS said. (Xinhua)
