Colombia rebel political party ban lifted

As peace talks with armed rebel FARC continue, court lifts ban on political wing of group.

    A court ruling could change the face of politics in Colombia.

    The Patriotic Union - banned more than ten years ago - has now been given the right to exist.

    It was founded by members of the armed rebel group FARC, who are now holding peace talks with the government.
