The Secretary General of the Organization of American States (OAS), Luis Almagro, today condemned the car bomb attack in Colombia that left at least eight dead and ten injured, and called for unity to face terrorism and violence.
“I condemn the explosive attack that occurred at the Santander General Cadet School in Bogotá, we must unite against these terrorist actions, and confront violence wherever it occurs, my solidarity with the victims, their families, and with the Colombian government and people. “Almagro said on Twitter.
The detonation of a car bomb in the parking lot of the Francisco de Paula Santander General Police School in Bogota left at least eight dead and ten injured today, confirmed the Colombian Ministry of Defense.
According to a statement from that ministry, the explosion “so far leaves 8 people dead and 10 injured” and for that reason the Colombian president, Ivan Duque, canceled a security council that he was going to carry out in Quibdó, capital of the department of Chocó, and returned to Bogotá.
Units from the Bogota fire department arrived at the scene of the attack to help the victims who, according to local media, apparently are cadets who were taking an official course in that institution. (EFEUSA) .-
