Shootout leaves two FARC soldiers dead

A clash between the Colombian Army and the 37th front of the FARC, left two FARC combatants dead (RCN, 16 November 2016). The firefight took place in the Santa Rosa municipality in the southern region of the Bolivar department, only 68 km from a previous concentration zone used during the 2016 failed peace attempt (Espectador). After the battle, government forces found three firearms, ammunition, a grenade launcher, and a communications radio. In light of the incident, Humberto de la Calle remarked that the cease fire is fragile and the peace process can not afford to be delayed (Espectador).
