Colombia suspends talks with ELN rebels over bomb attacks

The bombings likely reflect divisions in the ELN leadership, but with the public already opposed to the talks, the attacks have ended negotiations for the foreseeable future.

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.
