Comment Email Print
 Another Catholic priest was killed in Colombia yesterday. Father Henry López, 44, died in his home in Villavicencio, capital of the department of Meta, central Columbia. Fr López's body was found by a woman who works in the parish church, located in the neighbourhood of El Remanso. He had been tied to a chair in his study and died of stab wounds. Police were not aware of that Fr López had received any threats. He had only been in Villavicencio for eight months. His neighbours told investigators that they had heard no suspicious noises. Fr Henry López is the second Catholic priest to have been assassinated in the past two days in Colombia. Yesterday, Fr Saulo Carreño and his secretary, Maritza Linares were shot near the 'Sarare' hospital, on the road that goes from Saravena to Fortul, in the northwestern department of Arauca.
