Authorities claim 32 rebels killed
BOGOTA — President Juan Manuel Santos said a military raid killed 32 rebels in the country’s southern plains in the second major blow in less than a week to the Andean nation’s main guerrilla force.
Mr. Santos said the Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia (FARC) insurgents were killed before dawn Monday in Vista Hermosa in Meta province, a key municipality in a region of traditional rebel strength.
Last week, the military said it killed 33 rebels in Arauca state near the border with Venezuela.
The rebels took up arms in 1964 but have been badly battered in recent years, and are seeking peace talks. They have vowed to release their last prisoners in early April.
No reports of deaths after strong quake
SANTIAGO — A magnitude 7.1 earthquake struck central Chile Sunday night, the strongest and longest that many people said they had felt since a huge quake devastated the area two years ago.
Some people were injured by falling ceiling material, but there were no reports of major damage or deaths because of quake-related accidents.
The quake struck at 7:30 p.m. about 16 miles north-northwest of Talca, a city of more than 200,000 people where residents said the shaking lasted about a minute.
Police: 4 killed in small plane crash
NASSAU — Four people died when their small plane crashed Sunday shortly after taking off from a tiny airport in the Bahamas en route to the United States, authorities said.
Police Superintendent Paul Rolle said two women and two men were killed in the accident at Treasure Cay’s airport on Abaco island. He said authorities were withholding their identities until relatives could be notified.
Former Treasure Cay chief councilor Steve Pedican said the single-engine Piper aircraft went down near the runway in Treasure Cay, which he said was buffeted by gusty winds Sunday.
