In Colombia, the National Liberation Army—known as the ELN—claimed responsibility for a bomb attack that killed at least 21 people, including the attacker, and left at least 68 injured in the capital Bogotá Thursday. In a statement, the group said the attack, which targeted cadets at a police academy, was in response to government forces bombing an ELN camp last month, in breach of a proposed ceasefire. Colombia’s right-wing President Iván Duque said he is issuing arrest warrants for ELN representatives who are currently in Cuba for peace talks.
