April 04, 1986|United Press International

BOGOTA, Colombia — Soldiers found the beaten, strangled and stabbed bodies of 30 suspected leftist guerrillas in three mass graves in the mountains of southwest Colombia, the army said today.

The victims appeared to be some of the 158 members of the Ricardo Franco Front rebel group "executed" last November and December by guerrillas who accused them of being "army spies," army officials said. An army spokesman said some of the 30 bodies were "decapitated, with the heads at the side of the bodies."
