    Thursday's bomb blast is the second such attack in the last week.

     

    Nine police officers were killed on Wednesday in a FARC bomb ambush in the northern Santander province while on a counter-narcotics operation.

     

    Farc has been fighting for almost five decades against the government and far-right paramilitaries and partly funds itself through Colombia's cocaine industry.
