Injustice still rules in Latin America. Will they never know democracy? It looked so promising for a while:
A leader of families displaced by Colombia's violence was shot dead in what human rights groups said Wednesday is the latest attack on activists seeking the return of land stolen by far-right paramilitary groups.
Rogelio Martinez, 51, was riding on a mototaxi near his residence in San Onofre, Sucre province when gunmen intercepted the vehicle and shot him at least three times Tuesday, police Col. Hugo Javier Agudelo said.
No arrests had been made and police didn't offer a motive. Human rights groups said Martinez had been receiving death threats since December 2008.
