At the end of a security council in Arauca, the Minister of Defense, Gabriel Silva Lujan, said that the car bomb found with a large amount of Anfo and shrapnel, was aimed at the law enforcing authorities and civilians. Authorities attribute the failed attack to the Farc.
The official said that the Farc has also aimed to nearby municipalities and five schools located around the XVIII Brigade of the Army.
"This car bomb was not a toy but a vehicle provided with six cylinders filled of Anfo and shrapnel", said Silva.
He added that "with an action like this, what is showing the Farc is their weakness to defeat the law enforcing authoritiesâ.
"This attack is an act to intimidate the civilian community, especially in this election season", he said.
Finally, Silva Lujan announced that the manpower strength will be increased and a strong presence of the law enforcing authorities will be set in the department of Arauca.
