BOGOTA - A roadside bomb killed one oil worker and wounded six people in an attack in a violent southern province of Colombia, the country's vice president said on Wednesday.

Colombia has been battling leftist rebels for nearly five decades and while security has improved drastically in recent years, illegal armed groups continue to stage bombings, hit-and-run attacks and other violence.

Vice President Angelino Garzon said the bomb in the southern Caqueta region killed one oil worker wounded six others, including a passer-by.

"This attack ... is a true crime against humanity," Garzon said in a statement.
