Monday, May 28, 2018


Polls closed in Colombia Sunday afternoon after a polarizing presidential election for who will inherit a set of sharp challenges: hundreds of thousands of hungry Venezuelans pouring into the country, the future of a controversial peace accord that ended a 52-year civil war, soaring cocaine production and a sluggish economy.
