No. 2 FARC Terror Leader Killed In Colombia : NPR
Another terrorist leader bites the dust.
Colombia’s military killed the field marshal and No. 2 leader of the country’s main leftist rebel group in bombing raids and combat at a major guerrilla encampment at the edge of the country’s eastern plains, authorities announced Thursday.
The death of Jorge Briceno, 57, is a huge setback for the Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia, or FARC, which has been reeling from a decade of pressure by the U.S.-backed military.
It was not immediately clear whether Briceno was killed by bombs or bullets.
