Four Colombian soldiers were shot dead Monday in in a suspected attack by leftist rebels, police in the south of the country said.
A suspected rebel commando targeted the soldiers on a highway in La Montanita, Caqueta department, killing four, local police said. There was no report of any additional injuries.
