In addition, no deaths or injuries were reported from civil society or from the public forces. There have been three cases of hostile acts against the civilian population, none of them criminal or violent.

In all these actions, two guerrillas and one dissident (ex-militiaman) of FARC lost their lives; in addition a civilian was kidnapped, who was released unharmed without extortionary payments being made.
