Colombia's FARC fears backlash over new party

Rebel group concerned that joining political system could again lead to its leaders becoming targets.

    The Colombian government and the country's largest rebel group, FARC, have been negotiating for months to end a long-running conflict.

    FARC is undergoing a move towards forming a new party to join Colombia's political system.

    Even so, FARC fears history will repeat itself, and that its leaders who are linked to the new group will be targeted.
