El Tiempo, April 16, 2015

"Airstrikes resume after FARC massacre," the front-page headline of Bogota-based daily El Tiempo reads Thursday, alongside a picture of Colombian soldiers retrieving the bodies of their comrades who died in an ambush by the rebels late Tuesday in western Colombia's La Esperanza.

At least 10 soldiers were killed in the attack led by the Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia (FARC), a major setback in an effort to end 50 years of war between government and guerrilla forces that had led to an unprecedented truce last month.

El Tiempo quotes Colombian President Juan Manuel Santos as saying, "I won't be pressured by acts like this," as he ordered the resumption of airstrikes against the rebels.
