Colombia suspends talks with ELN rebels over bomb attacks

    Colombia’s government has suspended peace talks with ELN rebels, after a string of bombings killed seven police officers over the weekend.

    President Juan Manuel Santos has blamed the armed group for attacks on police stations in three cities.

    The year-long talks were aimed at ending nearly 50 years of violence.

    Al Jazeera's Alessandro Rampietti reports from Bogota.
