Colombian police fight against coca farming

Colombia launched a large anti-narcotics operation, going after poor coca-plant farmers and drug traffickers.

Colombian police are running one of the largest campaigns against drugs in recent years as they try to curtail cocaine trafficking.

United Nations estimates suggest Colombia is producing more cocaine than ever before.

As Al Jazeera’s Alessandro Rampietti reports from Tumaco, the situation is angering US President Donald Trump.
