    Colombian rebels kill nine police

    At least nine Colombian policemen have been killed and six others injured by a roadside bomb in Santander province.

    The authorities say it was planted by the Farc left-wing rebel group near Landazuri, 160km (100 miles) north of the capital, Bogota.

    The policemen were taking part in a mission to destroy coca bushes, which supply the raw material for cocaine, a key source of income for the rebels.

    Correspondents say it is the worst guerrilla attack this year in Colombia.

    The dead were members of a police unit based in the north-eastern city of Bucaramanga.

    Among the dead was the brother of top Colombian footballer Luis Yanes, who plays for Santa Fe in Bogota.

    The attack is another blow for President Alvaro Uribe, who has vowed to crush the rebels by the end of his term in 2010.

    Farc - the Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia - is the largest rebel group in Colombia. It has been fighting the government for more than four decades.

    Ronzo Reagan claimed the Contras that were (forced) fighting the Sandanista government of Nicaragua back in the 1980's were "Freedom Fighters" who were the same as "Our founding-fathers" here in the USA. Reagan was illegally funding the "Freedom-Fighters" and the CIA was smuggling cocaine to bankroll their purchases of weapons from East-Block counties such as Poland and Czechoslovakia. All of this was proven, but never admitted to by the guilty parties.

    But they must have been good, right? Ronzo Reagan said they were "Freedom Fighters." And these heroic entities did what was needed to liberate Nicaragua from the tyrannical forces of Marxism by doing such courageous actions as stopping a bus that was chartered to carry a wedding party. And then proceeded to murder every man, woman, and child on board. And the film taken of this heroic deed was seized and ordered "lost" by the Reagan administration. After all, "Freedom Fighters" don't murder innocent people. Only terrorists do that.

    I know. I have the film.
