Mass grave threatens Uribe's legacy

Residents say La Macarena site contains hundreds of people killed by military.

    Deep in the jungles of Colombia, a recently discovered mass grave is casting a shadow over the legacy of Alvaro Uribe, the country's outgoing president.

    People in La Macarena say the military is responsible for the bodies buried there - up to 2,000 of them, according to human rights groups. 

    The Colombian military has been accused previously of killing thousands of poor young men and women to increase their body count during the conflict with the rebel Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia (Farc).
