Twenty-two suspected FARC rebels were captured in a massive raid in the northwestern province of Antioquia, the Colombian Attorney General's Office said Monday.

Those rounded up were inhabitants of two rural villages and the town of Ituango, and were part of a "support system" for the 18th Front of the Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia, or FARC, the AG's office said in a communique.

One bus, two computers and three guns were among the items seized during the operation, which was launched over the weekend in a joint operation with the army's 38th Mobile Brigade.

Seven women were among the prisoners taken.

The AG's office said that the captives had arrest warrants pending on charges of conspiracy, rebellion, terrorism, drug production and possession, the manufacture, trafficking and possession of military-use weapons, and the trafficking of substances for making drugs.

Officials at the AG's office who carried out the raid also confiscated a hard drive, three two-way radios, four cell phones and other equipment.

The FARC, Colombia's largest guerrilla group, has some 8,500 combatants, according to official figures. EFE
