Colombians want lasting peace with rebels

Residents caught in conflict hope that the government and FARC rebels can reach final agreement to end conflict.

    The latest round of peace talks in Colombia between the government and FARC rebels has ended with a deadlock, but with the rebels declaring a unilateral truce.
     
    In the northern region of Cauca, where some of the worst fighting has taken place in the past, residents are considering this period of calm a "blessing".

    Al Jazeera's Alessandro Rampietti reports from Cauca.
