Castilla, the editor and publisher of a local newsmagazine in northern Colombia, was reading outside his house when a gunman shot him eight times and then fled on a motorcycle. For several years, Castilla had received threats for reporting about links among local politicians, landowners and illegal paramilitary groups. He was 50.
