The victims were taken from their homes to the border area of the Caracoli and El Carmen, where they were killed by armed men.

The corpses were found on Saturday in a wooded sector. They had been shot in the face and extremities.

The victims have not been identified so far due to the presence of illegal armed groups in the area. 

It is the 82nd massacre to be registered in the South American country so far this year, according to the Institute of Studies for Development and Peace (Indepaz).

There has been a territorial dispute over activities among illegal organizations operating in the region.

Local authorities maintain operations to stop the advance of armed groups, such as the National Liberation Army (ELN), drug trafficking groups, and the Dissidence.
