Bogota.– Rebels kidnapped five gold prospectors doing exploratory drilling for the Toronto-based Braeval Mining Corp. before dawn Friday in a northern province of Colombia, AP reported.
According to the report, one abductee was from Canada, two from Peru and two from Colombia. The chief of Colombia’s anti-kidnapping police, Humberto Guatibonza, said two other foreigners are also being held by kidnappers, one from the Dominican Republic and the other from Guatemala.
The armed forces commander, Gen. Alejandro Navas, told AP the men were seized around 5 a.m. by about two dozen rebels of the leftist National Liberation Army in a rural area of the Bolivar state municipality of Norosi.
