With FARC disarmed, Colombia’s peace enters phase 2

Wednesday, August 16, 2017

The UN’s first mission as peace observers in Colombia comes to an end on Tuesday with the removal of containers full of arms from FARC demobilization camps. Next challenge: reintegrating former fighters into a war-torn society.

The 28 camps have been used to disarm some 7,000 guerrillas and demobilize another 4,000 militia members of the country’s longest-running guerrilla group.
