"Colombian authorities say FARC rebels are believed responsible for an ambush that killed five police officers and wounded two in the southwestern coastal town of Tumaco. Gen. Orlando Pineda is the region's top police official. He tells The Associated Press the officers were part of a 10-man patrol that was on its way to set up a road checkpoint when it was attacked Wednesday morning." (08/17/11)
