Colombian security forces committed "a significant number" of murders over the past decade, often for personal profit, and few of the perpetrators have been punished, according to a report published Thursday by an independent U.N. human rights expert.
The term refers to killings in which civilians were lured to remote locations before being shot by soldiers who then dressed their victims in combat garb, or placed a gun in their hand, to make them appear like guerrillas killed in gunfights.
