According to Reuters reports, Herman Triana, known as “James Patamala,” was wanted for planning and financing the bombing of “Club El Nogal” in Bogota, the only attack of its kind directed straight at the capital city's business elite.

Triana was a member of the Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia, or the FARC—a Marxist-Leninist terrorist group that has been fighting an insurgency against the Colombian government for 45 years.

The attack involved the use of a vehicle loaded with 200 kilograms of explosives. It was driven into the parking garage below the club and later remotely detonated, resulting in 36 deaths and at least 200 injured. The club had about 600 patrons in it at the time.
