A bomb placed in a bathroom of a disco exploded in Apartado, Columbia, killing six individuals and injuring eighty-two party goers. Columbia has endured a week of deadly attacks in which at least thirteen people have died and over a hundred have been injured. The attacks are believed to be the work of rebel forces called Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia, or FARC.
 



Disco Bombing Kills 6, Injures 82 in Colombia
Antioquia state Lieutenant Gov. Jorge Mejia told The Associated Press the attack bore the hallmarks of the FARC. Authorities arrested a suspect shortly after the bombing with a hand grenade in his possession, Mejia said.

Mejia said seven people died in the blast, while Gen. Faucelino Latorre, the military chief in the region, said a total of six died.

Twenty-five of the injured are in serious or critical condition and have been flown to hospitals in Medellin, Colombia's second-largest city.

Until a decade ago, Apartado - located in Colombia's sweltering banana-producing region near the Panamanian border - was under the control of the FARC and a smaller rebel group. But the Colombian Army, along with right-wing paramilitary forces, took control over the region in 1994. Officials said Apartado has been relatively peaceful recently.

"The violence we had forgotten in Apartado ... came back for a visit today," said Apartado Mayor Fidel Banguero.

Good job on the authorities-- To get him with still another weapon in his possesion. People forget about the problems in South America, because of the Middle East drama. Columbia is a dangerous place, but if you look at their travel sites, they make the entire country look like a paradise.

it would seem kris, that the entire world is in chaos. There are uprisings and conflicts all over the world, it's just what the media promotes that gets interest.
