The No. 2 leader in a Marxist guerrilla group that has been at war with the Colombian government since the 1960s has been killed in a bombing raid, the nation's Interior secretary said Thursday.
V237;ctor Julio Suarez Rojas, also known as Jorge Briceno Suarez and by his nom-de-guerre Mono Jojoy, was the military leader for the Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia, commonly called the FARC.
He was killed near the town of Macarena, in the southwestern Colombia state of Meta, news reports said.
He had diabetes and bad feet.
Mono Jojoy is once again described by the uneducated media as a member of the MARXIST guerrilla group FARC. The writer must have been reading twenty year-old posts or newspapers from the 60's. MARXIST? FARC has not held a Marxist philosophy for almost twenty years. Get caught up will you?
