"President Juan Manuel Santos has replaced Colombia's military chief and also named new army, navy and air force commanders after announcing a new injection of $800 million in defense spending. The replacement of Adm. Edgar Cely as armed forces chief comes amid stepped up attacks by leftist rebels and rising violence by drug-trafficking right-wing gangs." (09/06/11)
