    Colombia's largest rebel group, the FARC, is due to finish disarming this week as part of a historic peace deal with the government.

    But many communities are still threatened by armed groups.

    They are especially active in areas rich with natural resources.

    A village in the northwest that declared itself neutral says it's now under threat.

    Al Jazeera's Alessandro Rampietti reports from San Jose de Apartado.
