Car blast man ‘paid’

The Weekend Post - - World -

A CAR bomb­ing which has killed 10 peo­ple at a Colom­bian po­lice acad­emy may have been car­ried out by the guer­rilla group Na­tional Lib­er­a­tion Army (ELN), broad­caster Cara­col re­ported.

At­tor­ney Gen­eral Nestor Hum­berto Martinez iden­ti­fied the bomber as Jose Alde­mar Ro­jas Ro­driguez, 57.

Ro­jas Ro­driguez had a ter­mi­nal ill­ness and was paid by ter­ror­ists to carry out the at­tack, Cara­col quoted po­lice sources as say­ing.

The at­tacker was re­port­edly killed in the ex­plo­sion, which in­jured al­most 90 peo­ple.
