Colombia: Paramilitary groups take over abandoned FARC territory

June 25, 2017 6:22 pm

Colombia’s largest rebel group, the FARC, is due to finish disarming this week as part of a historic peace deal with the government.

But many communities are still threatened by armed groups.

They are especially active in areas rich with natural resources.

A village in the north-west that declared itself neutral, says it’s now under threat.

Al Jazeera’s Alessandro Rampietti reports from San Jose de Apartado.
