Detail on phony police bike foils FARC

Telegraph:

A special forces unit of the Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia (FARC) had planned to celebrate the movement's 45th anniversary by killing Juan Manuel Santos. Ten rebels had disguised themselves as policemen and painted two motorbikes in police colours.

Unfortunately, they managed to stencil the word "Policia" back to front on the bikes' fuel tanks. "Ten members of the terrorist group the Teofilo Forero of the narco-terrorists of the FARC have been captured," announced President Alvaro Uribe, who has made the crushing of the rebels and their 40-year insurgency his government's central priority. "They were planning an attack on the minister of defence and members of his family."

I think most Colombians would think that is a fortunate error. Personally, I love it when a terrorist plot does not come together.
