Ecuador demands Colombia to increase security on their joint border
after paramilitaries allegedly entered Ecuadorean territory and
assaulted people in an Ecuadorean disco.
According to Ecuador’s Ministry of Defense, twenty members of paramilitary organization Águilas Negras (Black Eagles) “armed with rifles, machine guns and high caliber guns” entered a disco in Borbón close to the Colombian border to look for a woman they allegedly planned to kill.
The paramilitaries injured three people present in the disco, including the owner, the Ministry said.
Ecuador has repeatedly told Colombia to secure its border.
