Colombia: Unionist Killed
A unionorganizer in Baranquilla, on the Caribbean, was killed by a gunman,
bringing to 45 the number of unionists killed this ylear in Colombia, the
country's largest labor confederation said.  Carlos Barrera, a member of the
hospital workers union, was walking home when a gunman stepped off a
motorcycle and shot him to death.... [The leader of the CUT labor
confederation] said the confederation believed that right-wing
paramilitaries, already blamed for hundreds of assassinations of union
members in Colombia, were probably responsible.
