In a demoralizing setback for the military that further soured public sentiment toward stalled peace talks, at least 52 Colombian troops died in the crash of a U.S.-made helicopter and an ensuing guerrilla ambush, military officials said Friday. "This wasn't a rout," military spokesman Capt. Jose Espejo said. Nevertheless, he acknowledged that the crash and its aftermath caused the highest number of casualties that the armed forces have suffered in two years.
