Paramilitary warlords and drug traffickers stole millions of acres of prime farmland during 40 years of conflict in Colombia.

Now, the government of President Juan Manuel Santos has promised to return the stolen land to its rightful owners as part of an ambitious land restitution programme to compensate the victims.

Under the new initiative, former fighters are reintegrated into society, and work to remedy their wrongs.
