Steven Dudley reports from San Vicente, Colombia, on the escalating war between Colombia's government and leftist guerrillas, known by the acronym FARC. Colombia's air force has been bombing the region, located in the southern part of the country. FARC rebels have responded by knocking out electricity and telecommunications, and they've kidnapped prominent politicians visiting the region, including a senator and presidential candidate Ingrid Betancourt.
