Men on motorcycles fired ten times at the armored car. Some shots hit one wheel and others the back of the vehicle, reaching the armor.
"Fortunately, I was not in the vehicle but at my home," Torres pointed out, explaining that his drivers were coming to his house to pick him up.
The PC, whose militants are former members of the Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia (FARC), forcibly rejected the attack.
