Colombian social leader Yisella Trujillo and her husband were shot dead less than 24 hours after an international march calling for an end to murders of social activist in the country. Yisella Trujillo, a social leader from Colombia was murdered Saturday, less than 24 hours after a march took place against the mass murders of Colombian social and community leaders including members of the People’s Alternative Revolutionary Force of Colombia (FARC). Trujillo and her husband were shot at in Puerto Rico, Caqueta Saturday. She died at the spot and her husband died while the first respondents tried to save his life. Puerto Rico’s ombudsman Herner Carreño told local media that Trujillo and her family reported death threats for trying to reclaim their dispossessed land back from where they fled during the armed conflict. Mayor Hernan Bravo said, “we hope that with the accompaniment of all the institutions we will be able to clarify this regrettable incident that we reject and repudiate.”
