Victims, rebels walk through Colombia canal used to dump thousands of corpses

Victims and perpetrators, accompanied by the Colombian Truth Commission, Monday marched through the Canal del Dique that served as a cemetery for the bodies of thousands of people killed by paramilitary groups in Colombia.

The “paramilitary groups had the order to throw (the corpses of the victims) into the river so that they would not fill the cities, roads and farms,” Truth Commission president Father Francisco De Roux told EFE.

Those responsible “not only threw (the bodies of) people from the towns near the canal but (also) people from other regions of the country,” he said. EFE
