Colombia: Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia (FARC) have intensified attacks, dozens killed

Left-wing guerrillas have increased their attacks against police installations in cocaine-producing areas of southern Colombia, killing eight officers on Friday and bringing this month’s death toll to 55.

President Juan Manuel Santos took office last month, promising to keep up pressure on the drug-running insurgents.

But his government has gotten off to a difficult start in the provinces of Narino and Putumayo, where the Revolutionary
Armed Forces of Colombia (FARC) has gone on the offensive.

The provinces bordering Ecuador are key to the cocaine smuggling operations that fund Colombia’s decades-old
insurgency.
