Bogota Bomb Blast - January 2019

A car bomb has rocked the southern part of Colombia's capital, Bogota, killing ~10 people and injuring over 80. The blast occurred outside a police cadet academy and may have been carried out by an associate of the National Liberation Army (ELN), a known guerilla group in Colombia. The attacker was killed in the incident.

As a result of the bomb blast, security has been tightened by authorities in that part of Bogota and it's best to avoid the area. If you are traveling in Bogota, be aware of your surroundings and follow instructions from local police.

Please check with authorities for more information, follow any official warnings and listen to local news reports to monitor the situation. Failure to comply with directives from government authorities means you won't be covered by travel insurance.
