The shooting occurred on the highway linking the cities of Chigorodo and Mutata when three FARC fighters stopped a bus, made the passengers get off and tried to set fire to the vehicle, Col. Jorge Hernando Murillo, police commander in the Uraba region, told radio stations.

The guerrillas saw the ambulance driving by and opened fire on it, wounding the nurse.

One of the three men, who fled after the attack, was wearing a Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia, or FARC, uniform and the other two were in civilian clothes, Murillo said.

One person was killed and eight others wounded in a FARC attack over the weekend on Uribe, a city in the central province of Meta, police said.

Rebels attacked Uribe’s downtown early Sunday, Meta police chief Col. Marco Tulio Avendaño said.

The guerrillas threw a grenade at some people who were talking outside a building in the city’s San Martin district, Avendaño said.

Four of the wounded were taken to hospitals in Villavicencio, the capital of Meta, in critical condition, a military spokesman told Caracol Radio.
