Colombia: Providing aid after FARC peace deal
Description: The ‘La Havana’ peace deal signed in August 2016 between Colombia and the main rebel group, FARC, started the process to end a 52-year armed conflict. The amended agreement was ratified in November 2016 despite being rejected by a referendum. Half a century of war has left over 200 000 people dead. In the past 20 years, 7.3 million were forced to flee. The peace deal in Colombia involved only one of its rebel groups. Several areas of the country are still hit by heavy fighting. According to official data, instability and clashes have pushed at least 58 000 people out of their homes last year but NGO numbers are much higher. According to the humanitarian organisations, between January 2014 and August 2016, on average 16 000 people were displaced every month in Colombia. Video by Euronews
