BOGOTA (AP) - Colombian President Alvaro Uribe is offering up to
$2 million each for the capture of four of the country's top
suspected drug traffickers.
The president says both Colombian citizens and foreigners are
eligible for the award, given that police believe some of the
criminals may have fled the country.
Uribe said in a statement Monday that Colombia "is asking for
collaboration from the national and international communities."
Among the four being sought is the country's reputed leading
drug lord, Daniel Rendon. In January, Colombia's national police
chief said Rendon had offered a bounty of $1,000 for each police
officer his assassins killed.
The other three reputed drug bosses are Daniel Barrera, Pedro
Guerrero and Luis Calle Serna.
