Via CNN International:  13 FARC guerrillas killed in airstrike:

The bombing was against one of the most important units of the FARC, known as Front 48.

According to officials, about 35 rebels were at the camp. They are led by a guerrilla known as "Euclides," who is accused of shipping 25 metric tons of cocaine from Colombia to Central America and Europe.

"This is a decisive blow against Front 48, the structure that generates the most resources for the FARC by means of drug trafficking," Rivera said. "This is a new success of the joint and coordinated work by the military forces and the national police against terrorism."

The ongoing military successes against the FARC are remarkable.  In many way the Colombian armed forces have had more success against the FARC in the last roughly 3 years than it had in the previous four decades.
