“To date, the State Department and the Pentagon have identified six individuals <...>who may have been involved in the conspiracy [с целью убийства Моиза], as previously participating in American military education and training programs, carrying <...> service in the Armed Forces of Colombia, “- TASS quotes the statement of the head of the press service of the State Department, Ned Price.
The verification of the rest of the participants in the assassination, according to him, is still ongoing.
