Colombia: fear for safety/possible 'disappearance'/extrajudicial execution

, Index number: AMR 23/044/1999

A large paramilitary force has surrounded the rural district of La Gabarra, killing at least five local peasant farmers (Jorge Camilo González Prada, Gerardo Berbesi, Rafael Claros and two others, possible a further 15 people), threatening to attack the community and refusing to let the inhabitants leave. Amnesty International is gravely concerned for the safety of the civilian population of the area.
