It’s reported they were showing off a hand-carved paddle they claimed they had taken from the tribe based near the Colombian border.

The miners, she said, claimed that “they had to kill them or be killed.”

Ms Sotto-Maior said the brutal killings were reported to have taken place last month.

The first reported killing of uncontacted Indians in the region occurred in February.
