    Default Colombia Army Kills 35 Rebels In New Offensive

    By Agence France-Presse on Tuesday, March 27th, 2012

    Colombian troops killed at least 35 suspected Marxist rebels and captured four in an army offensive in the east-central department of Meta, President Juan Manuel Santos said Monday.

    Santos made the announcement in a meeting of his security council in Villavicencio, 110 kilometers (68 miles) south of Bogota, less than a week after troops killed 33 rebels in a gun battle with the Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia.

    The Colombian president praised the "very good results" of the army, and said two of those arrested in the operation were women.

    One of those killed was a guerrilla code-named Arcesio, who was a regional commander of the Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia guerrillas, Santos said.

    Very good news. Here's hoping they continue doing a good job dealing with the rebels.
