Colombia Rebels Cancel Unilateral Cease-Fire After Army Raid

Colombia's largest rebel group on Friday called off a unilateral cease-fire in reaction to a military raid on a guerrilla camp that killed 26 of its fighters, further straining negotiations to end the country's half-century-old conflict. The Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia said in a statement Friday that it felt obliged to end the five-month-old truce aimed at facilitating the peace talks because of the constant pursuit of its fighters by the military. The Thursday attack on the guerrilla camp in Cauca province, which President Juan Manuel Santos called a major blow against the FARC, appears to have been in retaliation for the rebels' own stealth raid last month, also in Cauca, on an army patrol.
