Argmiro Jimenez, Rosmira Tabares (f), Navier Antonio Jimenez, aged 7; Jorge Jimenez, aged 4; Dorely Jimenez, aged 13 and the residents of San José de Apartadó: On 26 March 1998, Colombian army soldiers opened fire on the house of Argemiro Jiménez and Rosmira Tabares, injuring them and their three children. This has heightened concern for the safety of other members of the community, which comes under the jurisdiction of San José de Apartadó, municipality of Apartadó, in the Urabá region of the department of Antioquia.
