Colombia’s Santos Says Several FARC Leaders Sick or Injured

May 7 (Bloomberg) -- Colombian President Juan Manuel Santos said several leaders of the Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia, the nation’s biggest guerrilla group, are sick or injured and called for the rebels to demobilize.

Santos, who cited intercepted e-mails from the group, known as the FARC, said a member with the alias of Pablo Catatumbo suffered a number of fractures after an accident in the jungle. Romana, also an alias, has back problems that make it difficult for him to walk, according to a statement on the presidential website.

The FARC, which is classified as a terrorist organization by the U.S. and the European Union, was founded in 1964 as a rural, Marxist insurgency.
