International News: Suspected cartel attack in Colombia claims life of soldier, injures 12 others

By Zoila Palma Gonzalez: On Wednesday, an attack with explosives on a military unit in Colombia claimed the life of a soldier and injured 12 others.

According to the Associated Press, the attack is being blamed on the Gulf Clan drug cartel.

Colombia’s Defense Ministry attributed the attack to a faction of the Gulf Clan, considered to be the country’s largest active drug cartel.

The Governor has since offered a reward of almost $12,800 for information leading to the capture of the leader of the faction, identified by authorities as Wilder de Jesús Alcaraz, alias “El Indio.”

Colombia’s President Gustavo Petro has been looking to cement a “total peace” plan in the South American country by negotiating peace agreements with all of its armed groups, including leftists guerrillas and trafficking organizations.
