Detonations lasted from dawn to late afternoon, says the mayor of Arauquita, in the southwestern Venezuelan states of Apure, reporting “a significant number of injured and dead.”

President Maduro reported the incident without offering other details, but it was reported by AFP that an exiled general said it was an attack on a camp of dissidents from Colombia’s FARC disbanded rebel group.
