POPAYAN – Six police officers were killed while on patrol in the South West province of Cauca, reports BBC News.
The ambush took place in a rural zone between the towns of Puerto Tejada and Villa Reca, reports El Tiempo.
The investigation has shown that the rebels were disguised and used a roadblock to launch their attack on the police, writes El Colombiano.
Officials blame Farc left-wing rebels for the attack.
This comes as the Colombian government and Farc are due to engage a new set of peace talks next week in Cuba.
The talks started earlier this month in Norway but both sides failed to agree on a cease-fire.
The number of Farc combatants is now believed to be at 8,000, down from 16,000 a decade ago, writes BBC News.
