BOGOTA, Colombia — A priest who has been negotiating the surrender of top Colombian cocaine trafficker Pablo Escobar said he is seeking another meeting with the fugitive at which he hopes the drug kingpin turns himself in.

Father Rafael Garcia Herreros, a white-haired 84-year-old priest, announced after a secret meeting with Escobar a week ago that the Medellin cartel boss would surrender in 15 days, accompanied by other members of the cartel.

Escobar is Colombia's most-wanted drug trafficker and is accused of masterminding a war on the state.
