FARC guerrilla fighters stand at the Front 34 Alberto Martinez encampment in Vegaez municipality, Colombia on January 1, 2017Colombia’s FARC rebels on Wednesday said one person was believed killed in fighting last week between their forces and renegade members opposed to a historic peace deal with the government. The violence threatens to disrupt delicate efforts by leaders of the communist rebels and the government to push through a peace accord to end a nearly 53-year conflict. “There was an armed confrontation between units of this bloc and a squad led by Alexander Mojoso, who resolved to abandon our ranks on the grounds that he disagrees with the current peace agreement between President Juan Manuel Santos’ government and the FARC,” it said.
