A car bomb inside a Colombian military base has injured 36 people – three of them critically. The government suspects the country’s largest armed group, the ELN, was behind the attack.
It happened in Cucuta, a town bordering Venezuela, and where several criminal groups operate drug trafficking routes.
Ivan Duque, the Colombian president, told reporters that his government would offer a $135,000 reward to find those responsible for the blasts in Cucuta. A special investigative group had also been set up to look into what happened, he said.
