Colombia wages "historic" crackdown on rebel mines

Friday, August 19, 2016


Colombia’s  authorities said they have dealt a major blow to leftist guerrilla army ELN’s finances with a “historic” military operation against illegal gold mines.

President Juan Manuel Santos said on Twitter that two people had been arrested and 26 excavator machines confiscated in raids on illegal mines in the southwestern department of Cauca — a “high-value target,” he wrote.
