Rebels injured in ‘combat’ with Colombian forces
FARC rebels in Colombia have clashed with government forces in the centre of the country, Defence Minister Luis Carlos Villegas said, as the two sides push to finalise a historic peace deal. “This took place 48 hours ago in La Uribe. A FARC patrol unit came upon an army rapid response team patrol and engaged,” Mr Villegas said. The rebels were members of a delegation due to travel to the ongoing peace talks being held in Havana.
