Clashes between dissident Colombian Revolutionary Armed Forces (FARC) and National Liberation Army (ELN) in the department of Arauca near the Venezuelan border have left at least 16 people dead, it was reported Monday.
Colombia’s Special Jurisdiction for Peace (JEP) said on Thursday that there were at least 6,402 extrajudicial killings between 2002 and 2008. The figure is nearly three times the number the group received when it began investigations.
Colombia's army said on Friday it had freed a Swiss and a Brazilian kidnapped three months ago by suspected guerrillas.
The Colombian government and left-wing FARC rebels ended a 15th round of peace negotiations on Sunday trading accusations over responsibility for the slow pace of the talks and for the first time failing to issue a joint statement on their progress.
