Fruit Giant Chiquita Sued for Colombia Deaths

The spouses of five missionaries killed by FARC rebels are suing fruit giant Chiquita Brands International for its role in financing the paramilitary group in the 1990s. The victims were working along the Panama-Columbia border for a Florida missionary group. Last year Chiquita admitted to paying millions of dollars to a right-wing Colombian paramilitary group on the U.S. terrorist watch list and agreed to pay $25 million in fines.
