In Colombia, uncovered a terrorist plot

July 6 2008

The Colombian army has found a cache of more than 1 ton of explosives. Arsenal, located in the countryside near Bogotá, contains stocks of ammonium nitrate, used as an ingredient in explosives and flammable liquid fuel, said Gen. Luis Perez Arango. According to him, cache, most likely belonged to the militants, "the Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia (FARC). Perhaps, the extremists were planning to commit a series of terrorist attacks in the Colombian capital.

Colombian security forces and military units are on alert after the military failed to conduct a special operation to release a loud group of FARC hostages, including a former Colombian presidential candidate Ingrid Betancourt and three U.S. military contractors. Authorities have warned that militants will want to remind ourselves with new attacks in the near future, reports RBC.
