Terrorism: August 31, 2002


The Colombian Army recently raided a Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia ('FARC') camp and found nine 'toy airplanes' that were slated to have been packed with explosives. The Colombian government believes these to be the first-ever of their breed. While several governments (including Colombia's) have occasionally found real airplanes loaded with explosives, this is the first time in memory outside of Hollywood that 'toys' have been set up for this use. The small planes were found some 250 miles northeast of Bogat, in a camp near the town of Araquita. - Adam Geibel
