La violencia en Colombia aumenta el flujo de desplazados colombiano a países vecinos
El Nuevo Herald (EE.UU.) Crece flujo de colombianos a países vecinos
La violencia en diversas regiones de Colombia ha provocado un incremento en el flujo de los desplazados colombianos a Ecuador, Venezuela y Panamá, coincidieron este miércoles los directivos de dos organizaciones nogubernamentales.

Shaina Aber, directora de la organización Servicio Refugiados Jesuitas/USA, dijo a AP que la crisis de desplazados colombianos se ha ``regionalizado'' ya que ``a medida que la violencia ha escalado en ciertas áreas de Colombia, naturalmente se riega hacia las fronteras'' y mencionó a las regiones de Chocó, Nariño y Putumayo.

Aber explicó que el deterioro en la seguridad que experimentan las poblaciones desplazadas se parecen cada vez más a la violencia existente en ciertas partes de Colombia con ``numerosos paramilitares e intenso tráfico'' de personas y productos ilegales. ver>>

 

Guerra contra las drogas profundiza su incursión en Centroamérica
The New York Times (EE.UU.) Drug Wars Push Deeper Into Central America
Josue Oviedo looked into his sister’s fading eyes as she fought to speak her last words.

“She was trying to tell me something,” he said, a day after the funeral for Daisy Oviedo Mejía, 22, who died in a storm of bullets while watching her brother play soccer a few weeks ago. “But she couldn’t. I gave her mouth-to-mouth but there was too much blood.”

Ms. Oviedo, a primary school teacher who liked to dance and sing with her students, was one of four people killed that day when gunmen opened fire at a park, the second such massacre here since November. She was innocent, the authorities said, another casualty in the violence and social ills rocking Central America as criminal groups turn the region into a main artery for funneling cocaine north to the United States. ver>>

 

Colombia comenzó a usar aviones no tripulados de EE.UU. para lucha contra el terrorismo en 2006: Wikileaks
The Washington Post (EE.UU.) WikiLeaks: Colombia began using U.S. drones for counterterrorism in 2006
The Colombian military began using U.S.-supplied surveillance drones for counterterrorism and counter-narcotics operations in 2006, according to a classified State Department cable released Wednesday by WikiLeaks.

The small, ScanEagle unmanned aircraft transmits real-time video of stationary and moving targets. According to the December 2006 cable from then-U.S. Ambassador to Colombia William B. Wood, the aircraft initially were to be used “to support U.S. hostage rescue efforts and assist” the Colombian military’s pursuit of guerrilla leaders.

“But it promises to be equally useful for combat against terrorists and in riverine drug interdiction,” Wood wrote. ver>>
