Colombia: Further information on Fear for Safety: Civilian population of the Catatumbo region, including Luis Alberto Cano (m), aged 18.

, Index number: AMR 23/013/2002

Amnesty International is seriously concerned for the safety of the civilian population of the Catatumbo region as incursions by the army-backed paramilitary group, United Self-Defence Force of Colombia, continue in various hamlets of Norte de Santander Department. More than 1,000 people have reportedly been displaced to the town centres of the Convención and El Tarra municipalities, where people are also under threat. We have no further information as to the whereabouts of Luis Alberto Cano.
