$2 million reward for traffickers

Colombian President Alvaro Uribe is offering up to $2 million each for the capture of four of the country’s top suspected drug traffickers.

The president says both Colombian citizens and foreigners are eligible for the award, given that police believe some of the criminals may have fled the country.

Uribe said in a statement Monday that Colombia "is asking for collaboration from the national and international communities."

Among the four being sought is the country’s reputed leading drug lord, Daniel Rendon. In January, Colombia’s national police chief said Rendon had offered a bounty of $1,000 for each police officer his assassins killed.


The other three reputed drug bosses are Daniel Barrera, Pedro Guerrero and Luis Calle Serna.
