Civilians get caught in Farc fight

Colombians feel brunt of government's offensive against rebel fighters.

    Voters in Colombia went to the polls on Sunday to elect a new Congress, and will vote for a new president in May.

    It is widely expected that whoever succeeds Alvaro Uribe as Colombia's president will continue his tough security policies which have seriously weakened Farc, the country's largest rebel group.

    But as fighting continues against the separatists, it is often civilians who are caught in the middle.
