NEW YORK Aug 21 (Reuters) - Colombia slashed its gold holdings by two-thirds in July, to just 3.77 tonnes, as spot bullion prices sank to more than six-year lows in the market's biggest rout in years, data from the International Monetary Fund showed on Friday.

Turkey lowered its reserves by 4.8 tonnes to just under 500 tonnes in June, data showed. (Reporting by Josephine Mason; Editing by Clarence Fernandez)
