BOGOTA (Reuter) - Five gunmen murdered a family of 12, including a five-year-old boy, apparently over a failed love affair, it was reported yesterday. Guillermo Lozano, mayor of Cunday, 75 miles (120km) south-west of Bogota, said the men arrived at the family's home in the nearby village of El Paramo on Thursday night and asked for two young women. When the family did as they were asked, the five men turned their guns on the group and killed them all. Early reports said the two women had apparently had an affair with one or more of the men who killed them.
