Three police officers and three civilians were killed in a guerrilla attack in the country's northeast, Colombian authorities said on Thursday.
State police commander Lt. Col. Richard Portilla said the officers were among eight responding to an anonymous report of a death when their vehicle came under attack in the town of Convencion.
Rebels attacked them with a bomb and automatic weapons, wounding 10 people and killing six, top state security official Octavio Martinez told The Associated Press.
Both Martinez and Portilla blamed leftist rebels but said they were unsure whether the Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia or the National Liberation Army were to blame.
