Ten of the 12 kidnapped Colombian amateur soccer players have been found dead in Venezuela
Authorities say the victims, who were found with bullet wounds in western Tachira state, had been kidnapped two weeks ago.
The motive behind the killings remains unclear although officials are connecting the crime to rising tensions between the Hugo Chaves-led Venezuelan government and U.S.-allied Colombia.
The Colombian government has condemned the killings and offered to help its neighbor with the investigation.
