Colombia Vows To Hunt Down New Rebel Group

Colombia’s President has vowed to hunt down Farc rebel commanders who have called on followers to take up arms after three years of peace.

President Iván Duque offered $882,000 for the capture of each of the rebels who appeared in a video with former Farc Commander, Iván Márquez.

Ivan Márquez says that he called for a return to arms because the Colombian state had “betrayed” the peace agreement he helped negotiate.

The former rebel leader, was one of the main negotiators of the 2016 peace deal, which ended 50 years of conflict.

But now the former commander has accused the government of “betrayal”.

But President Duque is accusing the rebels of being narco-terrorists who have the support of Nicolás Maduro, the President of neighbouring Venezuela.
