Farmers' strike disrupts Colombia life

Entire regions cut off for a week as farmers block dozens of major roads across the South American country.

    Angry farmers in Colombia are causing widespread disruption and riot police are trying to stop them blocking major roads.

    The protesters want the government to provide subsidies for agricultural products and cheaper fuel prices.
