PANAMA CITY (AP) — A shootout between suspected Colombian rebels and Panamanian border police at the two countries' border has killed one rebel and left seven captured.
The director of Panama's border agency tells local media that no Panamanian police were injured in the confrontation.
Frank Abrego said Friday that the clash occurred in Panama's southern province of Darien. There have been incursions in that area in the past by guerrillas of the Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia.
Abrego says police seized two assault rifles and 20 sacks apparently containing cocaine from the suspects.
