A police officer inspects the back of a vehicle from which, authorities say, alleged rebels of the Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia, FARC, launched home made grenades, damaging a home near a police station in Suarez, in Colombia's southern state of Cauca, Monday, Nov. 12, 2012. The white building above the damaged home is a police station. Regional police commander Col. Ricardo Alarcon said that more than 20 people were slightly wounded by the explosions.
BOGOTA, Colombia—Colombian authorities say two bombs exploded by suspected rebels at a police station in a southwestern town have injured 25 people and damaged 60 homes.
Cauca state police chief Col. Ricardo Alarcon says one house was destroyed and a police officer was among the injured.
Alarcon says no one had to be hospitalized after the Sunday night attack in the center of the town of Suarez. He says most of those injured had suffered damage to their eardrums. Others had shrapnel wounds.
The chief blames the attack on the leftist Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia, or FARC.
The FARC begins formal peace talks with the government in Cuba on Thursday. The government has so far refused a rebel request for a truce during the negotiations.
