US no longer considers Colombia a top terrorism threat

Friday, July 21, 2017

For the first time in its 13-year history, the US State Department’s annual Country Reports on Terrorism omits a statement saying that Colombia is home to the Western Hemisphere’s primary terrorist threats.

The revised description of Western Hemisphere terrorist activities comes in the wake of a sharp decline in terrorist incidents in Colombia, the result of a peace agreement with the country’s oldest and largest rebel group FARC and talks with the smaller Marxist group ELN.
