Journalists were abducted by dissidents along Ecuador-Colombia border and Lenín Moreno says three men have probably been killed
Three Ecuadorian journalists who were abducted by dissident Colombian rebels have probably been murdered, according to Ecuador’s president, who warned he would launch military strikes if the hostages were not shown to be alive.
“We can’t allow the criminals to impose their rules,” Lenín Moreno said in a statement late on Thursday after he returned early from Peru, where he had been due to attend this weekend’s Summit of the Americas. “We’re going to fight them in the realm they have chosen and we are going to defeat them,” Moreno went on to say.
