Colombia defense minister Rivera resigns

Colombia's Defense Minister Rodrigo Rivera resigned on Wednesday amid growing criticism of the security forces and increasing attacks by leftist rebels in the Andean nation, a source at the ministry said.

Rivera had held the post since President Juan Manuel Santos took office in August 2010, and other government sources said his resignation could lead to a broad command restructuring of the armed forces and national police.
