Bomb experts were dispatched to a Catholic Church there where a device weighing slightly less than one kilo was located under the floor and disarmed just before First Saturday Mass on the 6th of August according to unnamed source. It is suspected that the FARC was behind this attack. They were accused of another attack six days later where a car bomb was detonated, wounding at least nine people.
They also blew up a bus on July 9th last month. The FARC has been perpetrating killings on southern Columbia´s religious centers, especially in Nariño and Cauca provinces
Despite the Catholic Church's calls for mediation, it wouldn't be the first time the FARC has targeted Catholic events and individuals.
These Reds certainly have an interest in making people feel unsafe in their homes and even in their churches.
BOGOTA, Colombia (AP) — A car bomb exploded outside a major radio station and banks in Colombia’s capital on Thursday, shattering windows and injuring at least nine people, police said. No deaths were reported.
The blast occurred at 5:30 a.m. (6:30 a.m. EDT) outside the building of Caracol Radio in northern Bogota. The national police operations director, Gen. Orlando Paez, said the car was packed with at least 110 pounds of explosives.
Gen. Cesar Pinzon, the city’s police chief, suggested that leftist rebels could have set off the blast, but he said authorities were not sure whether the bomb was aimed at the station or at several nearby bank headquarters.
