Colombia: May 2, 2002


Local sources reported to that Italian Catholic news agency MISNA that fighting between regular Colombian forces and FARC guerrillas in Rosas (Cauca district, Southwestern Colombia) broke out on 30 April for control of the Pan-American highway. There were at least seven killed, five of which are guerrillas from two groups ( FARC and ELN ). The authorities report that the Pan-American highway had not been damaged and there were no restrictions on traffic.

Meanwhile, the Colombian Army continues to hunt for FARC's leaders after having come frustratingly close several times and even capturing members of their security detachments. - Adam Geibel
