Gang violence continues with impunity in Colombian city

Despite security measures, new report finds that violent crimes in Buenaventura often go unpunished.

    Colombia's government doubled the number of police on the streets of Buenaventura last year. But little has changed in the city, which is plagued by gang violence.

    While the government measures have had some results, a new Human Rights Watch report states that extortion, disappearances, and killings continue with impunity.

    Al Jazeera's Alessandro Rampietti reports from the port city.
