The other five were four Nicaraguans and a Mexican.

The newspaper said that, according to an official statement, the men were illegally in Colombia and were, apparently, members of an organized criminal group dedicated to drug trafficking, which allegedly had links with Central American gangs.

Alex Eduardo Ramírez Ramos, a Colonel of the Marine Infantry of Colombia, told El Tiempo that the arrests occurred in the rural area of the municipality of López de Micay, in Cauca.

Everything seems to indicate that the meeting was to advance logistical coordination on drug trafficking routes that would be used to distribute the illegal drugs to Nicaragua and Costa Rica before sending it to the United States.

At the time of arrest,  the men carried two 5.56-millimeter MP5 rifles, a 45-millimeter Glock pistol, 108 cartridges for rifles, one kilogram of marijuana and communications equipment.

The eleven foreigners are charged with drugs trafficking and weapons charges and will spending time in jail until the trial.

So far this year, the Colombian National Navy has captured 113 people for drug trafficking in the Colombian Pacific and has seized 36 tons of cocaine.
