Colombian former FARC dissident 'Guacho' killed by military

After extensive manhunt, Colombian police and military kill Walter Patricio Arizala, leader of the Oliver Sinisterra Front, a group of former FARC rebels that refused to sign the 2016 peace deal.

    After months hunting him in the Colombian jungle, security forces have shot and killed the man known as "Guacho".

    The former FARC commander refused to surrender as part of a peace deal in 2016 and continued to lead a group of up to 80 other rebels.

    Walter Patricio "Guacho" Arizala was accused of drug trafficking, extortion and murder, and was on the "most wanted" lists of both Colombia and Ecuador.
