Bogota, Nov 24 (EFE).- Soldiers killed 10 National Liberation Army, or ELN, guerrillas in fighting early Sunday in Fortul, a rural area in the northeastern Colombian border province of Arauca, military spokesmen told Efe.
Two guerrillas were captured and taken to San Antonio Hospital in Tame for treatment of their wounds.
The rebels belonged to the "Comrade Castro" unit of the Domingo Lain Front, one of the ELN's most powerful units.
The front has hundreds of fighters in Arauca, the guerrilla group's main bastion, military spokesmen said.
