BOGOTA, Colombia — Colombian prosecutors issued an arrest warrant Thursday for a 73-year-old former domestic security chief who said say participated in the 1989 assassination of presidential candidate Luis Carlos Galan.

Retired Gen. Miguel Maza Marquez was charged with aggravated homicide for allegedly allying himself with the drug traffickers whose hired guns killed Galan, said German Gomez, spokesman for Colombia's chief prosecutor.

The DAS domestic security agency that Maza Marquez led provides bodyguards for politicians, human rights activists and others. Prosecutors said the general intentionally lightened Galan's bodyguard contingent to enable the Aug. 18, 1989 assassination.
