In the middle of the night, a U.K. tourist is driving through Colombia and decides to take a nap in a bar.
The traveler turns around and is greeted by a Colombian police officer who tells him to get off the road.
The tourist is then arrested and taken to a local police station.
After being charged with “illegal possession of a firearm” and “assaulting a police officer,” the tourist was later released and told to return to the U, where he was charged with violating a no-fly zone.
When he failed to comply with the U’s request for a lawyer, Colombian authorities arrested him on charges of “criminal trespass.”
Colombia has a strict no-further-travel policy for tourists.
The U.N. has called on Colombia to eliminate such restrictions and said it was “deeply concerned” about the situation.
Colombia has also suspended flights to and from the country due to the situation and imposed fines on those who do.
Colombia, one of the poorest countries in the world, has a high rate of homicide, which is nearly double the U.-S.
average, and the country’s armed forces are implicated in a number of massacres.
The country is also home to a number “narco-trafficking” networks that have taken a heavy toll on the Colombian economy, including human trafficking.
A report by the U., the UCC, and Colombia’s National Institute of Justice found that Colombia’s drug cartels had used armed gangs to distribute heroin, cocaine, and marijuana across the country.
Colombia is the second-most dangerous country for travelers in the Americas, after Honduras.
