A relative of a victim of the armed conflict in Colombia waits to bury the remains of her loved one in the central cemetery of Villavicencio on December 17, 2015The remains of 29 people who disappeared during the half-century conflict in Colombia were handed over to their families Thursday under a deal between the FARC rebels and the government. The small brown coffins were presented to relatives in a ceremony in the central town of Villavicencio, a traditional stronghold of the Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia (FARC). “It’s hard to finally find him under these conditions,” said 60-year-old farmer Jose Manuel Calderon, who had spent more than a decade searching for his son after he was abducted and forced to join the FARC at age 11.
