At least six people were killed—three of Serbian nationality and three Bolivians—and one was kidnapped in an assault perpetrated by suspected drug traffickers in Bolivia’s eastern department of Santa Cruz on May 15. The victims were stopped at a false police checkpoint and were tied up, tortured and executed, authorities said. The gunmen kidnapped Bolivian national William Rosales Suárez, who police identified as “the ringleader of a drug-trafficking gang in Santa Cruz,” with a price of $1 million on his head.
