Extrajudicial killings

The end of March, there were articles in both the Washington Post and the LA Times about Colombian civilians killed by the military. In our work here in the Middle Magdalena, we frequently hear about people, often civilians, who are killed by the Colombian military outside of combat. The LA Times article in particular, titled "Extrajudicial slayings on rise in Colombia", did a good job of describing the underlying incentives for these extrajudicial murders.
