Colombia’s intelligence agency is at the centre of a scandal after revelations that it spied on – and is still spying on – critics of the government.

Documents reveal that Colombia’s department of security, known as DAS, targeted individuals including opposition party members, journalists and priests of the Catholic Church.

DAS has denied the allegations. Gabriel Elizondo reports from Bogota.
