Rebels Attacks Colombian Power Pylons

Leftist rebels attacked energy towers in Colombia for the second time in three days Wednesday, this time leaving more than a 100,000 people without electricity along the country's Pacific coast, officials said. The rebels blew up at least six major pylons near Ricaurte, 330 miles southwest of Bogota in Narino state, Raul Ortiz, director of the local energy company Central Electrica. The army blamed the strikes on the Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia, or FARC, the major rebel group battling to topple the country's U.S.-backed government.
