16:04, August 13, 2012

BOGOTA, Aug. 12 (Xinhua) -- The Colombian military has intensified the fight against Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia (FARC) guerrillas, killing three and arresting six in the southwest, Defense Minister Juan Carlos Pinzon said Sunday.

The government forces launched the operation in rural Buenaventura in the southwestern province of Valle del Cauca, where the rebels staged a series of attacks on public infrastructure, destroying a power tower on Saturday.

Pinzon said in Cali, the capital city of Valle del Cauca province, that the guerrillas were members of "Manuel Cepeda Vargas," a military front of the FARC.

President Juan Manuel Santos sent Pinzon and army troops to Cali to guarantee security in the region.
