In Colombia A Car bomb explosion military base injures 36.
The explosion took place at a base used by the 30th Army Brigade in the northeastern city near the border with Venezuela.
“We reject and repudiate this vile and terrorist act which sought to attack the soldiers of Colombia,” Defence Minister Diego Molano told journalists.
“Thirty-six people were injured. Three of them with a degree of gravity.”
A car bomb explosion at a military base in the Colombian border city of Cucuta injured 36 people on Tuesday, the defense minister said, casting blame for the attack on leftist rebels.
One of the injured has had surgery, Molano said, and 29 are hospitalized.
Two men drove a white Toyota truck into the base after passing themselves off as officials, he said, adding there were two explosions.
Despite a 2016 peace deal with Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia (FARC) rebels, Colombia’s military continues to battle National Liberation Army (ELN) guerrillas, crime gangs and former FARC members who reject the accord.
The ELN, FARC dissidents and crime gangs are all present in sometimes-restive Norte de Santander province, where the 30th Brigade operates.
“The initial hypothesis is that the ELN are behind this demential and vile act,” Molano said.
“Also being investigated is the involvement of FARC dissidents.”
