, Index number: AMR 23/041/2001

In the early morning of 24 March a group of 250 army-backed paramilitaries raided Llorente, a district in the city of Tumaco, Nariño Department. The entire civilian population, which counts some 2000 people, was reportedly forced out of their homes. The elderly and children who didn't run fast enough were apparently shot at. Some civilians are believed to have "disappeared" or been killed or injured.
