#AceWorldNews – COLUMBIA (Arauca) – June 30 – Thirteen oil workers and their relatives have been injured in a rebel attack on a camp in the north-eastern Colombian state of Arauca.
Two home-made explosive devices were thrown into the camp operated by Occidental Petroleum in Cano Limon.
The army blamed the attack on the left-wing National Liberation Army (ELN).
Oil pipelines are frequently targeted by the rebels, but Colombia’s mining minister said it was the first time that a camp for workers had been hit.
The attack happened on Sunday afternoon as the workers and their relatives were getting ready to attend Mass.
