Colombia's president says authorities have arrested five men in the slaying of a U.S. anti-drug agent during a robbery.
Colombia’s president says authorities have arrested five men in the slaying of a U.S. anti-drug agent during a robbery.
President Juan Manuel Santos says the five men are alleged members of a gang that specializes in robberies. Authorities say two are taxi drivers.
Both Colombian and U.S. officials have said they believe that Drug Enforcement Administration agent James Watson was probably killed in a common robbery, not because of his law enforcement work.
Colombia’s National Police director says Edgar Javier Bello is believed to be the man who stabbed the 43-year-old Watson on June 20 after he left a restaurant and got into a taxi.
