Bogota [Colombia], October 18 (ANI/Sputnik): Three Venezuelan citizens and two Colombian citizens were killed in Colombia's northwestern department of Antioquia, governor Anibal Gaviria Correa said on Sunday.

"In the last hours, multiple homicides took place in [the town of] Betania. At least five people -- three Venezuelans and two Colombians -- were killed," the official tweeted.

The governor added that a meeting of the Extraordinary Security Council chaired by the local security secretary, Jorge Castano would be convened.
