Colombia boosts security after looting at stores with rebel ties

Thursday, February 22, 2018


Colombian armed forces stepped up security after mobs broke windows and stole food at 16 supermarkets that the government said are a front for hiding assets of former FARC rebels.

Police fired tear gas at hundreds of stone-throwing youths and made numerous arrests following raids on stores that the attorney general’s office said belong to the FARC, now a Marxist political party.
