Colombian troops storm rebel camp

Colombian security forces say they have killed at least 11 left-wing rebels in a clash near the Venezuelan border.

The army said troops backed by planes and helicopters captured a camp belonging to the ELN - the smaller of Colombia's two guerrilla groups.

The fighting occurred near Saravena, in the eastern Arauca region.

It came a day after the authorities confirmed that 14 policemen had been killed in an ambush in the southern region of Caqueta.
