Colombia: Fear for safety/ "disappearance"
Olver Montoya Cáceres, Evert Bonet Quintero and Cirro Navarro, peasant farmers from the hamlets of Playas Ricas and El Paraíso, in the municipality of El Carmen in Norte de Santander department, have reportedly been abducted by army-backed paramilitaries. They were abducted during raids on the area in which at least three others (Dover Jaimes (m), Eduardo García (m), Omar (surname unknown) (m)) were killed. The lives of the three are in grave danger. Other inhabitants of the municipality may be at risk of attack and "disappearance" at the hands of paramilitaries operating in the area.
