Violent night in Bogotá, where protestants set fire to a police station with agents inside


- Advertisment -

According to the authorities, the Police Immediate Attention Center (CAI) in the La Aurora neighborhood, in the south of Bogotá, was cremated when there were 10 agents inside, of which five were injured.

A mob set fire to a police station in Bogotá, Colombia on Tuesday, in which there were between 10 and 15 agents inside who managed to escape the flames, while at least 15 other positions of that institution were targeted by vandals in an action that the mayor from the city, Claudia López, described it as “brutal.”

“The 22 human rights commissions that we activate have been preventing and protecting abuses of citizens, but the violent escalation tonight is brutal,” the mayor said on Twitter.

According to López, 15 police officers “tried to burn them alive” in the Immediate Attention Command (CAI) of the La Aurora neighborhood, in the south of the Colombian capital, and added that another 15 of those positions were “vandalized” and there are “police shot ”and“ wounded with a knife ”.

“Bogotá suffers tonight (Tuesday night) from the attack of organized criminals who are being confronted by our public forces. We emphatically reject these attacks against members of the Police, ”said Colombian President Iván Duque at midnight.

Faced with the overwhelming violence, López asked the Defense Minister, Diego Molano, that the public force “help guard” the Police detention centers where 2,825 people are detained to “prevent them from putting the lives of those deprived of the Liberty”.

The violent protests began on April 28 and until today they have left, according to the Ombudsman’s Office, 19 dead, a figure that social organizations such as Temblores raise to 31.

The riot in Bogotá takes place on the eve of a new day of protests called for this Wednesday by unions and social organizations against the government’s economic policy.


According to the authorities, the CAI of the Police in the La Aurora neighborhood was cremated when there were between 10 and 15 agents inside, of which five were injured.

“Prompt recovery to our policemen. Thanks to the community that interposed so that they would not be incinerated within the CAI Aurora facilities by social misfits ”, said the commander of the Bogotá Police, General Óscar Antonio Gómez.

“At this time there is an escalation of violence in the city, here in the Tintal Library a bus of the SITP (Integrated Public Transport System) has just been incinerated and in other parts of the city,” said the Secretary of Government of Bogotá .
