Various of destruction 11. Various of police patrolling 12. Women crying next to coffin STORY-LINE: An explosion killed three children and injured 35 other people in a northern Colombian town on Thursday. Officials said the bomb had been planted by rebel guerrillas in retaliation to the government's decision to suspend peace talks. Police blamed the leftist National Liberation Army, or E-L-N, for the pre-dawn explosion in the town of San Francisco, 180 kilometers (110 miles) northwest of Bogota, that killed two sisters, aged seven and eight, and their 10-year-old male cousin. Television images showed a huge dirt hole and caved in homes near the police station. Rebels apparently intended to bomb the barracks by placing explosives in sewer pipes. But the blast barely damaged the police post, causing destruction instead to 25 nearby houses and injuring civilians. No policemen were hurt. The rebel group has not claimed responsibility. It would be the first E-L-N attack since President Andres Pastrana on Tuesday suspended contacts with the group. Pastrana made the decision because he said the group has been inflexible in demanding a large rebel sanctuary in northern Colombia to host the talks. Colombia's 37-year civil war pits leftist guerrillas from the 5,000-strong E-L-N and the much larger Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia, or FARC, against the government and right-wing paramilitary groups.

Various of people standing around coffins of dead miners STORYLINE Rescue workers and authorities continued their search on Sunday for people who were trapped in a landslide at a makeshift mine in southern Colombia. The landslide killed at least 21 people and injured another 26 on Saturday. About ten people are missing and presumed trapped under the wave of dirt and rock in the open pit mine, near the town of Suarez, 220 miles (352 kilometres) southwest of the capital, Bogota. "Right now we sending in machines to remove the mud," said Rafael Antonio Piragauta, Civil Defence Director of Valle del Cauca province. "Workers will also search by hand and will keep an eye on whether any deceased remains are in the mud. We hope to avoid what happened to us yesterday when a body was caught in the equipment and dismembered," Piragauta added. Among the deceased were the parents of Pedro Sandoval. "I am the oldest son of four bothers. My parents are now gone, so we are orphans. I'll have to leave school to support my other brothers." Officials had recovered 21 bodies and rescued 18 people who were hurt in the morning accident in the open pit mine, authorities said. The landslide happened after local people started digging in the mine following reports that gold had been found underground, officials said. Many appeared to have little experience in tunnelling or mining, and rescue efforts were hampered by the lack of any records of how many people entered the mine. Rich in resources, but with a limited government presence across much of the country, Colombia is home to many such makeshift mines, particularly in zones where gold or emeralds have been found. With little to no supervision, mining accidents are a frequent occurrence in the Andean country. In February a mine explosion killed 32 people. The same month another accident killed eight more miners.

SOUNDBITE (English) Colonel John Peabody, commanding officer of 11th Engineering Brigade, US Army Third Infantry Division: "We extend our sincerest condolences to the citizens of Baghdad on this tragedy. We are very sorry that as the result of Saddam Hussein putting his ammunition in large stockpiles throughout Baghdad has resulted in this. We implore those Iraqis who continue to attack us to cease doing this, because it is their own citizens they are killing as a result of this attack on the ammunition supply point we were guarding. This ammunition supply point was inspected twice by our ordinance disposal experts. They certified it as being stored in a safe manner, and if it were not for the fact that it were attacked, we would not have suffered any casualties whatsoever." 18. Wide shot of damaged buildings and flooding near blast site 19. SOUNDBITE (English) Ziat Tarik, Baghdad resident "They (the US military) came here, said that Iraq would be more safe, say that we will give you freedom, but what we see in the streets - I think you see that too - in these, all streets of Baghdad, there is no safety, there is no safety. The kids, some kids have some weapons, weapons everywhere, explosions everywhere - what safety they talk about?" 20. Pan from ruined house to people on street STORYLINE A US-held war cache laden with 80 Iraqi missiles exploded near Baghdad on Saturday, killing six people and pummeling homes around with warheads, rockets and mortars. The disaster struck at 0750 local time (0350 GMT) in the Zafaraniyah neighbourhood of the capital as residents slept or assembled bread and tea for breakfast. A US soldier at the scene said that out of sight of US troops at the depot, someone fired four flares over a wall around a sprawling open field that American forces had been using to store the ordnance. The flares hit the ammunition pit, setting fire to wooden ammo crates. In no time, deadly remnants of Saddam Hussein's regime were pounding homes without warning. About one and a half kilometres (about a mile) away, a missile plowed into a dirt lane between two rows of crude two-story homes. Walls crumbled and roofs blew off, demolishing four houses. Inside one, the impact killed a 50-year-old worker, his four teenage children and his 23-year-old daughter-in-law, a new mother. US officials said 10 or more Iraqis sustained injuries - at least two of them were said to be in serious condition. At least five of the injured were admitted to the Zafaraniyah General Hospital. According to a US spokesman, soldiers initially came under small-arms fire when they went to the scene to help the wounded and to look for survivors. They returned fire and there was no word on further casualties. US military officials said some of the tactical weapons at the dump had been stored there by Saddam's regime, proven throughout the war to have stashed such items in schools, homes and other populated areas. The cache included Russian-made Frog-7s and Iraq's own Al Samoud II, according to the US Army's 11th Engineering Brigade, which had been helping to handle the site. The officials admitted the US military had put some of the ordnance there itself, however, collecting abandoned Iraqi caches from around the city for later disposal. Residents of the Zafaraniyah neighbourhood described days of what appeared to be controlled blasts by American soldiers at the dump, apparently to destroy leftover Iraqi weaponry. Some of the residents said they had visited US military officers to stress that the depot was near crowded neighbourhoods. After that, US forces stopped night explosions and ceased the daytime ones three or four days ago, they added. The disaster touched off protests in the stricken Zafaraniyah neighbourhood and in the city centre. Protesters, led by a Shi'ite Muslim cleric, gathered outside the Palestine Hotel, where some US military officers are based, and chanted anti-US slogans. Many of the protesters carried photo-copied posters in English, blaming the US for Iraqi deaths and rejecting the US administration of Iraq. But the commanding officer of the US Army's 11th Engineering Brigade said the Americans were not to blame for the explosions or its victims. Ultimately, he said, the fallen Iraqi regime was responsible.
