Varios frentes para acabar con las FARC
BBC Mundo (UK) Colombia: la otra batalla para acabar con las FARC
Aunque el diálogo con las guerrillas continúa siendo una posibilidad lejana, el gobierno colombiano no está intentando acabar con el conflicto armado únicamente por la vía militar.

Para las autoridades la principal medida del debilitamiento de las FARC y el ELN tal vez sea el número de guerrilleros muertos o arrestados.

Este domingo, el presidente Santos destacó los "casi dos mil capturados" y los "cerca de 500 (miembros de las FARC) dados de baja" en lo que va del año.

Pero, hablando desde Marquetalia, el "lugar de nacimiento" del más antiguo y poderoso de los grupos guerrilleros colombianos, el mandatario también envió otro mensaje. ver>>

 

En Colombia, persisten los asesinatos después de que los enfrentamientos han terminado
Los Angeles times (EE.UU.) In Colombia, killings persist after the fighting is over
Despite security gains, Colombia remains a dangerous place for rights campaigners, labor leaders and politicians. The civil conflict and lawlessness that destabilized Colombia for decades continue.

Reporting from San Onofre, Colombia— Ask Arleth Mendoza whether she feels safer now that the Colombian government has demobilized right-wing militias and all but declared victory in its decades-long war with leftist rebels.

Her husband, Antonio, a city councilman here who stood up for landless peasants, was gunned down in July, leaving their three children, all younger than 9, fatherless.

"There was no warning, no threats. They killed him in cold blood," said the widow, who appeared still to be in shock six weeks later. "He gave his friends and family everything, but since he died I haven't received the slightest bit of aid from the city or state, not even the $1,500 it cost to bury him." ver>>

 

Cerrando las brechas
The Economist (UK) Bridging the gaps
A creaking transport network is holding back Colombia’s growth. How fast can Juan Manuel Santos improve it?

ARTICULATED lorries must take turns to pass one at a time over the narrow steel bridge spanning the Sumapaz river in the town of Melgar, south-west of Bogotá, Colombia’s capital. The bridge carries the main road from the Pacific port of Buenaventura to central and northern Colombia. Transporters loaded with Great Wall pickups coming from China cross paths with coking coal on its way to the United States, Peru and Mexico. This bottleneck will be eased later this month, when a 4.5km (2.8-mile) dual-carriageway bypass with wider bridges will open. But across the country the “monumental backwardness” of Colombia’s transport network—as Juan Martín, president of the Colombian Infrastructure Chamber, puts it—is perhaps the biggest obstacle to economic growth. ver>>
