Colombia’s government says it’s deploying the military to the southwestern province of Cauca after five indigenous people were murdered on their reservation. Six others were wounded in Tuesday’s attack, after heavily armed assailants opened fire with guns and grenades on a convoy of people responsible for security in the semi-autonomous Nasa Tacueyo indigenous reserve. Among the dead was community leader Cristina Bautista. Colombian President Iván Duque traveled to the region on Wednesday, blaming dissidents in the FARC rebel group who oppose a peace deal. But police have made no arrests, and no suspects have been named in the murders.
