Rebel bombings cut water, power to Colombian city

Bogota, Mar 5 (EFE).- Three simultaneous bombings on Tuesday interrupted electricity and water service in the Pacific port city of Tumaco, Colombian authorities said, blaming the attack on leftist FARC rebels. The guerrillas fired two makeshift mortar shells at an army post, while the third attack was carried out with a car bomb, Jaime Rodriguez, an official with the Nariño provincial government, told Blu Radio. The explosives-packed car was detonated in front of the facilities of the state oil company Ecopetrol causing damage to nearby vehicles and houses, he said.
