The rebels died in clashes with army troops in Arauca, Meta and Cauca provinces.

Two of the Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia, or FARC, guerrillas died in an operation in a rural area outside Tame, a city in Arauca.

The two rebels had belonged to the FARC for 23 and 18 years, respectively, the army said.

A female guerrilla was wounded and captured in the same operation.
