Colombian rebels' offensive continues

Despite temporary unilateral ceasefire by FARC, clashes and suffering for civilians persist.

    Despite peace talks between Colombia's FARC rebels and the government, little has changed for the people living at the heart of the five-decade conflict.
     
    Efforts by the government to increase its presence in Cauca is an attempt to weaken the rebels' influence in the region.

    Recently, the FARC announced a temporary unilateral ceasefire. But clashes continue to erupt leading the military and the local population to think that the fighting has not really stopped.
