Colombian guerrillas killed in army operation

A police and military attack on a FARC camp in northern Colombia on 4 September killed 15 or more guerrillas, many of whom were apparently buried to death in a landslide that occurred during the raid, Spanish television and EFE reported on 6 September. One of those killed in the assault in the Hacarí locality near the Venezuelan border was a commander dubbed "Danilo García," head of Front 33 of the FARC and considered close to its supreme leader "Timoshenko." Authorities recovered his body and two others of 15 guerrillas thought buried in the landslide, Defence Minister Juan Carlos Pinzón told journalists in Bogotá on 5 September.
