FARC hands over 30 percent of weapons

The Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia (FARC) in Colombia stated that they have handed over 30 percent of their weapons to United Nation monitors – as per the terms established under the peace agreement.

The remaining weapons are to be handed over by June 20th – with approximately 7000 weapons to be surrendered before the FARC can transition into a political party. 

After five decades of war and peace negotiations, Colombia’s peace agreement with the FARC was ratified in December of last year.
