Eight Gunned Down in Southern Colombia

BOGOTA – Eight people were killed and four others wounded when at least a dozen armed men walked into a bar in southern Colombia and began shooting, the police chief in Nariño province said on Sunday.

The massacre took place around midnight Saturday in the village of Villanueva, Col. William Montezuma said by telephone from the province bordering Ecuador.

Doctors treating the wounded at area hospitals say they are out of danger, according to the police commander.

Witness accounts indicate the assailants opened fire without saying a word, the colonel said, adding that Villanueva has no previous history of mass killings.

While the investigation is just under way, Montezuma speculated the slaughter might have been the work of the small ELN rebel group or of heavily armed drug traffickers who operate in the border region.

Police and army troops are in Villanueva to assist in the probe, he said.
