Colombia: Fear for Safety/Possible "Disappearances"
Army-backed paramilitaries have reportedly abducted at least 20 young people: including Ramón Aguilú Gaitán; Nelson Aguilú Gaitán; Pedro Pablo; Ramón Encinosa Díaz, aged 17; Yineth Alvarado; and Ferney N. Ríos, aged 15, from the municipality of Puerto Gaitán, Meta department (forcibly displaced people in Villavicencio, Meta department, and members of the church-run organisation Pastoral Social that is helping them). According to some reports they may be planning to forcibly recruit them. Amnesty International is seriously concerned for their safety.
