Colombia: One human rights advocate killed every three days

In the southwest of Colombia, one community leader or human rights advocate is killed every three days.

They’re being targeted by armed groups fighting for control of land they use to cultivate drugs and mine gold illegally.

The rate of killings has increased since the government signed a peace deal with FARC rebelstwo years ago.
