Colombian President Alvaro Uribe (R) del

Colombian President Alvaro Uribe (R) delivers a speech next to his Defense Minister Juan Manuel Santos at the place where yesterday exploded a car bomb in a parking facility of Nueva Granada Military University, October 20, 2006, in Bogota. Uribe abruptly ended negotiations Friday with leftist guerrillas Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia (FARC) on a hostage swap and ordered the army to step up operations aimed at rescuing abductees. Uribe ordered the armed forces to target the FARC leadership. The swap deal the two sides had discussed would have exchanged 58 high-profile hostages, including former presidential candidate and senator Ingrid Betancourt, a French national, and three US nationals, for some 500 jailed rebels. The FARC is Colombia’s largest and oldest rebel group, with some 17,000 members. AFP PHOTO /Mauricio DUENAS
