Colombian security forces have killed 10 members of the Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia (FARC) in a military raid in the western province of Choco.
The armed forces also arrested four FARC guerillas in the early Thursday raid, according to the The Colombian Report.
They were able to locate a FARC base used by the guerrillas accused of extorting money from local businesses following two months of tracking in the pacific coast area.
The raid comes on the heels of an announcement on Monday that FARC commander "Jeronimo Galeano" was killed in the province of Huila.
Galeano was reportedly the head of 16 security rings charged with protecting the FARC supreme leader, "Alfonso Cano."
In February, FARC released six political hostages as part of a unilateral pledge to release high-profile captives.
FARC, Latin America's oldest insurgent group, has been battling the Colombian government since 1964.
The leader and founder of the group, Manuel "Sureshot" Marulanda, died of natural causes in 2008, dealing a huge blow to the rebels' morale.
The rebel organization is believed to have an estimated 8,000 fighters operating across a large swathe of the eastern jungles of the Andean nation.
