Ecuador Condemns Executions

Quito, May 7 (Prensa Latina) Ecuador denounced that in the March 1 attack of Colombians on a covert guerrilla camp in this territory, four prisoners were murdered in captivity.

Preliminary autopsies, recovered by Ecuadorian forces after the operation, revealed they were executed in cold blood, emphasized government minister Fernando Bustamante on Tuesday.

Bustamante, along with the Security chief Gustavo Larrea and foreign minister Maria Isabel Salvador said they have evidence that several of the victims were shot in the back.

The minister noted that is not clear yet if Ecuadorian Franklin Aisalia was executed in the camp or after being taken to Bogota with the body of Raul Reyes, who was spokesman of the Colombian Revolutionary Armed Forces.

Faced with those revelations the foreign minister demanded from Colombia an autopsy on Aisalia to determine the time of his death as well as details of that operation.

We will accuse the neighbor country at the Organization of American States, he noted.

This attack has generated a diplomatic crisis and collapse in relations with Colombia.
