The guerrillas blocked the road and ambushed the trucks, killing the driver and another unidentified person, according to a Transamazonia oil company spokesperson. Military personnel responded to the attack with gunfire.
Six people were injured earlier in Caqueta Monday after the FARC allegedly detonated a house bomb.
Guerrilla activity has been particularly strong in Caqueta in recent years, notably against oil companies. Emerald Energy has suspended operations in the area following a succession of guerrilla attacks.
A 14-year-old also died Monday in the neighboring Putumayo department after stepping on a landmine allegedly planted by guerrillas.
A commander from the military’s jungle brigade has blamed guerrillas for the explosion, stating that they do not respect the lives of children or peasants and that they use landmines as a weapon of protest against the government’s eradication of illicit crops.
