Colombian armed conflict intensifies

Colombia: The Colombian armed conflict is threatening to intensify after a new incident in area close to the border with Ecuador, with at least eight police officers killed and four injured. The police officers were trying to avoid an incursion of possible FARC guerrilla members to San Miguel municipality, Putumayo.

General Oscar Naranjo said the attack came from Colombian territory and denied that there were civil casualties during exchange of fire between both forces.

This incident motivated the Governments of Ecuador and Colombia to activate the Binational Border Commission (COMBIFRON) to reinforce the common border.

Defence Minister Rodrigo Rivera assured the Government is working on a new plan to fight the rebels, which will be ready in September.

National Police reported that casualties in the military forces had increased.

Government forces and rebels have intensified confrontations since Juan Manuel Santos assumed the Colombian Presidency August 7.
