Colombia's Farc rebels prepare to hold final conference
Issued on: Modified:
After almost four years of talks in Cuba, Colombia’s government and the left-wing Farc rebels, the Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia, agreed last month on a peace accord after half a century of armed conflict. Before it signs the deal, the Farc leadership will meet for the 10th National Conference that starts on Saturday – it's expected to be the last one they'll ever hold. There they will explain the deal to hundreds of rebel commanders over the course of a week. The conference will be held near El Diamante, Caquetá in Southern Colombia, in Farc heartland, where final preparations are being made. Correspondent Emily Wright has this report.
