The Colombian government says it has unveiled a plot by the country’s largest rebel group, the Farc, to kill the former president, Alvaro Uribe. Defence Minister Juan Carlos Pinzon said the assassination was due to be carried out by a rebel column operating in central Colombia. It was reported that Uribe’s security will increase.
The assassination was being plotted by the Farc’s Teofilo Forero Mobile Column, under the command of a rebel known as Paisa, said Mr Pinzon.
Mr Uribe’s father was killed by the Farc in 1983 in a failed kidnapping attempt.
