Solidarity and support to the Colombian people
January 18, 2019
On Thursday, January 17, a car bomb exploded at a police academy in Bogotá, Colombia, killing 21 people and wounding more than 50. This is the deadliest attack in Bogotá, since the government signed a Peace Agreement with the FARC in 2016.
We express our solidarity with the authorities and the people of Colombia and extend our deepest condolences to the families of the victims. In partnership with the organization Alianza Para la Paz, Interpeace has been working for over two years with the Colombian National Police, a key institution to build lasting and sustainable peace.
In these difficult moments, Interpeace reaffirms its commitment to continue supporting the efforts of the National Police and all Colombians on their path towards lasting peace.
