Travelers Killed in Southwest Colombia

Five travelers were murdered near the hamlet of Timba while traveling through the rural area near the southwestern Colombian town of Suarez, police reported on Sunday.

The excursion was headed to Alto Naya, a mountainous area on the border between Cauca and Valle de Cauca provinces.

The National Police of Popayan, the capital of Cauca province announced the travelers were shot to death by unidentified individuals who opened fire on the vehicle. Authorities believe the crime surge is due to drug traffickers vying for control of territory and smuggling routes.
