Another Gran Colombia Gold ( murder

What fun. The need-to-know is:

Fernando Augusto Silva Henao, 45, one of the leaders of the miners working for Gran Colombia Gold ( was shot dead last Thursday after leaving his home on the way to work. He took six bullets. Suspicion has fallen on the ultra-right-wing Urabeños paramilitary group in the area, because the workers have refused to pay them any more protection money. The approximate 1,500 workers are now on strike t protest the insecurity under which they work.
