At least seven soldiers were killed and five wounded Wednesday in clashes with suspected FARC guerrillas in southern Colombia, amid peace talks between the government and the rebels, the military said.

A statement said the operation had sought to "protect our civilian population" in San Antonio de Getucha, which has seen battles with the terrorist group.
