Columbia : Fear for safety/ 'disappearances'

, Index number: AMR 23/059/2003

In recent weeks army-backed paramilitaries in the city of Barrancabermeja, Santander department, reportedly issued a "death list" of 15 youths El Chico and Provivienda districts of the city, and forcibly abducted at least eight people. Their whereabouts are unknown. These threats and 'disappearances' raise concerns for the safety of all inhabitants of these and other districts in Barrancabermeja.
