Monday, October 22, 2012


The Colombian army says five soldiers have been killed by Farc rebels, in the first major incident since peace negotiations were launched on Thursday.

The attack took place on Friday night in a Farc stronghold in the Putumayo region, near the border with Ecuador.

Colombian President Juan Manuel Santos has made it clear that he won't agree to a ceasefire offered by the rebels while peace talks proceed.
