Motorcycle bomb actived by FARC and directed at the troops
October 21, 2010
On October 16, 2010 at 10:12 am terrorists from the Tenth Farc squad attacked the civilian population in a treacherous attack representing a violation of human rights and international humanitarian law by putting in the housing of a motorcycle a bomb that was activated at the time that military personnel were passing, wounding two children, 6 and 11 years old and Mr. Denis Asdrúbal Cantor 45.
The same action slightly wounded three soldiers of this unit and judicial authorities are in search of the house owner and own a shop close to this crime, those who were not there at the time of the explosion.
The two children and the gentleman wounded in this attack against the civilian population, were provided by the National Army with immediate humanitarian aid and air support to be taken to hospital in Arauca capital, where they receive specialized care at this time.
We deplore this terrorist attack caused by FARC against civilians while we denounce these facts to the national and international bodies, because they represent a clear violation of human rights without considering that those affected could even be the children of this town of Jordan.
Brigadier General Rafael Alberto Neira Wiesner, Commander of the Eighteenth Brigade of the Eighth Army Division, announced that operations have increased in the area to find the perpetrators of this abhorrent act against civilians.
