Colombia's Farc vows to fight on

Leftist group says it will continue its armed campaign against the incoming government.

    Juan Manuel Santos, the former defence minister, has won Colombia's runoff presidential election and is expected to take office in August.

    During his time as defence minister, Santos oversaw a number of successful operations against the Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia (Farc).

    On the eve of the election, Al Jazeera's Teresa Bo was able to meet members of Farc. They said they will not give up their struggle and that they are ready to fight the new government.
